The hole for the guy post is 1.4 meter deep and 2 by 2.5 meter wide. Only the bottom 60cm is filed with concrete. On the poles are two wings welded. I wanted both of them in the concrete. With only 60cm of concrete the upper wing was not in the concrete, Also i want that the concrete is up till the surface so the post is not standing in the water.

For this we made two moulds. One for the bottom part and one for the upper part.  Jan PA0VAJ and I poured the concrete we did one pole every day.
