sweet, thanks for the link! That is basically the same setup that the Alberg site uses, except theirs is built with scaffolding pipe. I think i'll build one going the steel route for strength and ease of disassembly
I just looked it up and my mast is 31'9". I think it is very similar to the catalina 27 so the dimensions should be close enough. I'm still wiched nervous to do it myself though! If anyone wants to come see the possible carnage one of these weekends let me know!
