Quick but not recommended way to get the mast off

This is a quick but not recommended way to get the mast off when the sailing season goes to an end.

A Danish offshore wind farm service catamaran with engine issues collided with a Polish Hallberg-Rassy 312 in Barhöft, Germany a few days ago. Luckily there was no person injured but the sailing boat was badly demolished including collapsing of the mast. The offshore service vessel was built in 2011 and can carry up to 12 passengers.
