Mast snapped 12/09/09

IN the early morning hours of Wednesday December 09, '09 A terrible storm struck west Georgia. Along with losing most of the roof of my home, the wind snapped the mast of our 27 bayliner buccanneer. It is in two peices broke even at the spreaders. It is currently in the weilding shop in LaGrange, GA, but a fellow sailor called me yesterday and said he has a mast off of a 25 Catalinia he is willing to sale.

My question is if the step plate from my old one will fit the CAL's:
1. does anybody know the approximate length of either
2. would I not be better off to have a mast that is not patched as opposed to one that is even if the new one is shorter?
3. Would a shorter mast's weight be close to the one I have now (I mean had.)
4 What I am missing in the problem?
