Mount a compass to the top of your plug to hide the fact that it is a plug. I understand the idea of the mast hinge, but there is a tremendous amount of force on that mast. I've tried using running stays for my mast but it still bends too much. I'm now looking in to getting a carbon fiber mast. If you do the mast hinge, I would highly recommend a supporting post.
