When I got into a shelter I had a new mast made. It is mounted on the lower deck, with an attachment to the FB deck (just below the gooseneck fitting) that holds it up. There is a 1/2" diameter pin through the support and the mast at that location, no stays, as they would block access to the FB. I use a single part tackle attached to the bottom of the Radar to raise and lower. As I get older, it gets heavier, so I may go to 2 or 3 part one of these days. I also had a stand made for it when lowered, so it stands happily on the lower deck (aft cabin roof). The mast is 3" Irrigation pipe, so not real heavy.
