Maybe I'll have to remove the i-bolt and go with a lighter weight antenna that won't break the mount.
You could just use non-conductive parts, lexan, plastic, etc.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
