I previously suggested using a wooden "A" frame, wooden "T" mast, etc.  Wood is a MUCH better structural material than PVC and has been used for thousands of years in construction.  Yes, using wood may cost a little more than PVC.  However, when painted, etc., wood will last for decades whereas PVC is a very unknown quantity and the life of it is going to depend on a LOT of variables and most of those variables are not good where the structural strength of PVC is concerned.

It would be great if all the Negative Nancys would offer a positive solution instead of just shooting it down that way we can all benefit.
