About 25 years ago I had a small aluminum broken mast (for a 14' day sailor) repaired by a local machine and welding shop. I am pretty sure they welded some additional support inside to help the outside weld. The repair was not exactly true but the mast and boat still live. It is something I keep an eye on but not a boat I use that often these days.
It would help to know what make of sailboat it was etc.
