Irwin 34 Mast Weight

A relative just acquired an Irwin 34 that needs a lot of work. He is planning to take down the mast in order to trailer the boat to his home. He is concerned about the weight of the aluminum mast. Any idea how much it will weigh?

I think it weighs about 150~180 lbs. Just a guess, maybe a little more. Hope he's gonna use a crane.

With the rigging on add another 100lbs. It will be in the way for transport unless coiled.

I just recently weighed my mast for a 32 and it was 232 lbs with spreaders and rigging (includes roller fulling fore stay)
