It's definitely possible - we did it the first time we dropped our stick. We transported our mast on crutches down through the Champlain Canal system and I wouldn't do it again - it was difficult to put back up due to all of the extra weight, and we had to be very careful about its positioning to make sure we didn't damage the sail. But - as I mentioned - you can do it, just be easy on the sail.
