Catalina 30 Stepping the Mast?

What is the best way to drop and secure the mast for haul out on Catalina 30? Is the only way with a crane?

Unstepping C-30 mast

I am planning on unstepping my mast next week to install a new wind transducer and other out of water servicing. The yard that is hauling it out has a lift with a crane and is the easiest and safest way to do this. You will need to remove the boom and the furling sail and then wrap all halyards to the mast and then same for stays and shrouds when they are disconnected. Then you will need to disconnect the electrical/VHF cables. Hope that helps
