No initiative , that's the trouble.with amateurs today... ;-)
After sutable temporary extra guying, saw thro' each leg in turn and insert
a compression resisting insulator.
OR , to save money on insulators, dig a hole around and under each leg,
then , using a swimming pool rubber liner, insulate the foundations from
the surrounding soil...
A 60m _insulated_ vertical tower would be worth having, you would save
money then by needing a much smaller dustbin !

Thankyou to M0BMU, RU6LA and ON7YD for your replies, which have provided
with enough information to dismiss shunt feeding.
I have a sling shot which I can loop over an outcrop on the structure at
around 20m AGL,
from which I will use an insulated wire down to a dustbin formed coil.
PS Ed, my power will not approach 1W ERP with my projected antenna.
