Mast stepping

I just trailer my 35''ft sailboat from Panama City, FL to Fort Washington, MD. I contacted Ft. Washington Marina a month in advance and confirmed they had the capabilities to unload the boat and step the mast (55''). Imagine my surprise when I arrived and the lift operator refused to step the mast! And he was operating the identical lift that had removed the mast in FL.
To make a long story short, I am sitting at a marina in Ft. Washington, approximately 40 - 45 nm from Cobb Island, MD with only 5 days to try to get the mast re-stepped before I have to return to Savannah, GA. And the only avaliable crane company is booked until Friday AND the only person who can commit to allowing me to bring in a crane to Fort Washington Marina is off until Weds.

HELP!!! any and all suggestions are appreciated.
