The standing rigging weighs under 100 lbs, would guess the mast is 200 lbs. I 
disconnect the forestay, coil it and store it on board for the winter to 
protect the Harken
Carbo Foil. I can pick up and carry the mast myself, no problem placing it on a 
rack up
to shoulder height.

To switch from saw horses to a mast dolly I place the dolly beside the mast in 
the middle,
left one end of the mast and pivot the mast on the far sawhorse. If I  end up 
on a higher
spot on the mast racks I pick up one end and put it on the rack, then go to the 
other end
and lift the mast up.

Based on that I have to think it is under 250 pounds.

Hi Gerald, 
I don?t have an exact weight for the mast on my 30 MK I, but I would 
guesstimate it?s in the range of 200-250 pounds.  Two guys can lift it but it?s 
a struggle, and they can?t hold it for long or move it very much.  Four or five 
guys can carry it more easily.
