Hello. Brand new here and looking for some opinions.
Many years ago at my house, a used sailboat mast was acquired to mount a short-wave radio antenna high in the sky. It needs to come down and I'd like to get some idea of how heavy it is and, thus, how many people will be needed.
Here is the relevant information.
It's about 35 feet tall, aluminum, hollow, tear-drop shaped (or pear-shaped, or like an airplane wing). It measures 6 inches across. The narrow end of the tear-drop is 1 inch. Maximum fatness of the tear-drop I would guess is maybe 3 inches. It's been in place for about 35 years and was acquired used, so there are no modern materials.
I'm just looking for ballpark guesses as to how much weight I'm dealing with.
Thanks in advance.
