What mast did you use for that beam Mark? It looks nice and sturdy.

hi matt.
my old fishing pole/roach type from Preston market. it breaks down into sections with swaged ends, so it slots together EASY i don't use the top 2 section to thin.
but is still 20ft high approx.

Thanks Mark.

I guess you can rotate it using the Strongarm method? Perfect for holding a small beam for the UKAC.
