Do the cups and vane move on the indicator? If they are stuck, may just need a shot of silicon or mineral oil and some excercise. The other problem may be corrosion at he connection. In either case the mast does not need to come down. A quick trip up in a bosun's chair can solve either. If not your cup of tea, can usually find someone in the marina that will do it for you. Also sense the mast comes down every winter...did the wind indicator get connected? Wires should be around the base of the mast.
