install VHF antenna on Pacific Seacraft 34

Have Pacific Seacraft 34, 1986 and need to install VHF antenna at masthead and run the new cable. I a few questions specific to PS 34.
1) Is there conduit already installed in mast?
2) How is the top plate on mast attached/easiest way to get to conduit?
3) Best method of getting messeger line to bottom of mast.
A) small fishing weight
B) unhook wire from anchor light -attach line and then use it to pull it down mast and attach new wire and then back up mast.
Any other tips from those who have already done the project would be helpful.

Thanks for your input,
