Also, if the foam absorbs any water...which it will, it will promote corrosion at the one place you really don't want it...the point where the mast is stressed by the deck. Good plan for spar failure if you do it that way.
The only real way to do it is to have only external halyards, and to have the mast be without unsealed holes... but that is both unrealistic and almost impossible...not to mention inconvenient as hell.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
