I finally got around to taking a pix of the McGyver rig I've made to step my mast. I was intent on making something that can travel wiht the trailer easily when not inuse. I have 3/4" electric conduit (EMT) 10 ft length as the basis. the top end is a ring wiht two legs welded to slip fit the conduit. I made 2 eash hinged tubing assemblies to fit into the stanchion base and allow the swing of the mast raising.
