Baltimore/Patapsco: Dropping the Mast?

I'll be putting Audra into indoor winter storage at the end of November and will need to drop her mast. Any thoughts on where I can rent/borrow a gin pole, crane, or other suitable tall thing for a couple of hours?

Thanks,
Chris

Chris,
If you're putting her on the hard, could you not use the travel lift as a hoisting point? Does the marina not have a crane or bucket truck? That's alot of mast to try and lower with a gin pole unless you have a mast tabernacle in place, and a tried and tested rig already set up.

I'm putting her into the new Paradise Cove indoor facility and they say that they don't have the infrastructure to handle masts (although I'm heading down this afternoon to double check).

I probably shouldn't have included the term "gin pole." I used to belong to a working club where everyone did their own masts and the local "pole" was referred to as the "gin pole." It was really just a tall hoist which is what I'm looking for. I'm not planning on articulating my mast down using a real gin pole.

Problem solved: Paradise Cove can do the work.
