I have an American 26. I stand the mast quite easily by carrying forward over the bow sprint. Pin the base in the tabernacle, forward and with fore and side stays in place, attach a line to the topping lift on the back stay, using the boom as a gin pole which my wife holds upright in the gooseneck, I take a turn around the transom stanchion and just pull it up. Goes up quite effortlessly. Lower it the same way.
