My az-el has an 8 foot steel mast, with two 5 foot PVC and closet dowel verticals on each end. It's been up for 5 years in the Florida sun and storms, supporting a 10 element 2m yagi, 30 element 70cm CP yagi, a 35 element 23cm yagi, and a 3 foot S dish at the ends of the PVC/wood H booms. I did use the grey thick-walled PVC, not the white stuff. It's a perfectly acceptable material with the wood inside, non-conductive, non-rusting.
