How to unstep a mast of a 37 ft Cat

Hi Guys! New to the forum
I am wondering if the same unstepping procedures apply for a 37ft Catamaran.
Her mast is quite large, I believe 40 to 45 feet tall.
Thanks in advance.
JA

It sounds like you might be best using a rigger and a crane

I contacted a local rigger and he said he'll do it for $470.
The crane is only $150 down here. I thought I could save some bucks doing it meself.
Thanks

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Hey Man,

We step the mast of our 25 footer every time we sail. It's doable, but it still takes two. After 40+ times, we're pretty good at it. But our mast is only 29 feet and probably 2/3 the section of yours. I REALLY think yours is a job for riggers. I'm a DIY guy. I do EVERY THING. But this one is beyond. Unfortunate.

I am a DIY to the bone, but definitely this is a job for a crane.
Thanks everybody
