sentientpat is on a distinguished road
My step has an elongated hole that the bolt can travel about 4" vert. Not really a hinge, but a fixed point with some play(vertically). Mast weighs about 75+ lbs(rough guess). What is a "heavy duty lifting setup"? H'book suggests using boom (attached at gooseneck) to raise point of effort ( 10' ) and increase leverage( a little ).
