folding mast HELP NEEDED!!!

I need to convert my 35'' ketch into a folding mast motorsailor, in order to acess my dock (there is a 10'' bridge to go under).
I''m having difficulty finding plans or examples of how to sucessfully create and raise the mast. Any suggestions, plans, products, ideas, resources or drawings would be greatly appreciated- PLEASE HELP!!!!!

That is a very big boat to have a mast in tabernacle and the way that big boat tabernacles work, you will probably still be higher than 10 feet with the masts folded. You won''t find stock plans for that kind of thing and so will need to have one custom designed by a naval architect or marine engineer.
