jumaggafanny is on a distinguished road
and more mast

Adding the antlers,
masthead nav/anchor w/antenna and windex. masthead light is carved out and modified to have a 1/4" clear (now yellowed) plexiglass top w/VHF antenna and windex. the plexi is to let out some light to illuminate wndex.
behind that I built a wing to lower everything ese below lights.is the rotovecta wind cups for the Raytheon St-40 and the rabbits foot of the industry a negative ion lightning protection device. May be a rabbits foot but it's MY rabbits foot.
This is hanging with max moment load, no sweat, but there isn't "gusty" conditions that started this mod.
