Radar Arch

Hello, we have a Cruisers 300 cxi, 2007 model and one thing that lets the boats appearance down is the amount of corrosion at various locations on the radar arch. I think its more to do with metal reaction, i.e stainless into alloy etc, rather than salt corrosion, however, I need to address the issue and this where I need your help please?
Would anyone have any idea how much the arch weighs? I want to lift it off, is it a two/three man job?
Once off I plan to have it shot blasted (sand blast) and then powder coated.
Any advice you can give will be hugely accepted.

Re: Radar Arch

Just my knee jerk answer. To me it looks more like a 3 man job. Two big men probably can do it but with an increased chance of banging it against something.

Now that I say that...maybe 4 man job. Two men on the boat to hand it off to two men on the ground.

The arch looks like it can be a clumsy thing to handle once it is off the boat.
