As for the mast raising, here is a suggestion: http://www.macgregorsailboats.com/mast_raising.html

This is obviously for a different boat design, but it could easily be fabricated on a boat with a hinged mast. Basically, you just put a winch on the bow, or if you have a trailerable boat use the existing winch, to crank the mast up. Make sure you either make a point of leverage for it to get started moving up, or just lift it up yourself and start cranking from there
