After reading what some of the other guys had to say about big masts,
I'll give you something else to consider. Working on them is real pain.
Depending on what you are planning to put up, think about the
possibility of just having tower extend past the top set of guys. The top
antenna can be on a rotator for 360 degree rotation, and the bottom
on sidemounts or a ring. This comes in very handy for servicing and
should be much stronger than a mast.
I've thrown together a web page that has some pictures that might
help you visualize this. It's at : http://www.qsl.net/k8dx .
