davewild is on a distinguished road
I don't know if it will help but over here in Perth/Fremantle we have to lower the mast to get from the river to ocean due to low bridges. To do this we have a hinge set up about a foot above the deck. Below this is normally another piece of the same section. If you like I can take a photo of it to send to you. Only problem is that it's already dark and I'm on a flight early tomorrow morning. I will be back on 6th Oct and can do it then if that helps. This arrangement is really strong. Back in the late 70's/ early 80's an IOR maxi used to be here and had a similar set up.
