Re: Mast weight

If you cut off the bottom 12 inch and weigh the chunk it will give you an idea of what you're dealing with. Actually the weight doesn't matter until you get it to the scrap yard. A Hi ab arm can lower it quick and safe. If it can't reach above the CG lash a block or barrel to the base and lower away. lashing the weight is to prevent kick out as you and a couple of buds hand o'vr hand it.
