cutting down aluminum masts

Ive recently took dow some aluminum masts of an old ketch rigged boat to replace my wood ones. The main mast is three feet too tall and the spreaders too this makes it easy to figure out how much to cut off. The gooseneck can be reriveted easy. The problem I have is how to cut a straight cut around the mast. Normally for something like this I woul just measure several times from the current end around the mast and connect the dots. The current end however is on an angle. Makeing the marking of the mast very difficult. Any sugestions that arent "dont cut down the mast" would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
