I think you'll manage lowering the mast nicely. It will give you a good opportunity to inspect it and learn how the halyards run, etc.
Just remember that even a fairly light mast can get unwieldy when the lever arm kicks in as it goes horizontal. Here's where your son and friends can be of good help. And always be mindful of overhead power lines when doing any mast dropping/raising.
Those Rhodes 19s are neat boats. My kids have used them in sailing camp, and to this day talk about how much fun they were. Hope you have just as much fun with it!
