Is this doable with just yourself ??
I have a mast raising system under the title" Mast Support During Trailering" the raising system is also the supporting system while trailering. It uses no 2X4 & can be done alone with an electric winch that you use while holding / supporting the mast while raising & lowering. I've used this system for 2 years now in total safety with NO hassles at all. Instructions are also under that title. If there is a down side to this system, it's the boat has to be on the trailer to use, but I've never had to raise / lower the mast anywhere else.
