Managed to get the mast down for the season in the midst of an 8-hour sunny, calm spell, with rain and 25-mph predicted tomorrow. Did it with 2 1/2 adults, plus some great assistance from a passerby at the club. A new record for short-handedness. Not bad for a 70 ft. 800-lb. mast. Did flatten the tires on the mast carts, however.
