Hobie 16 Sailing Question

Hello, I''m the new owner of a Hobie 16. Normally there will be two of us sailing her, but I imagine there will be some nights I want to take her out on my own. Setting the mast seems to be a major ordeal since there are few places to gain leverage from and few sturdy footholds. Any input on rigging a Hobie mast solo would be much appreciated! Today I connected the side stays and used a little contraption to hold the mast in line with its base while it''s lifted. I got about 5 feet from the mast and couldn''t do it alone. Thanks for the help.
