Not familiar with that particular boat, but you have a serious issue that needs to be addressed. For certain the deck cracks mean water has gotten in and you have wet core. Is there a compression post in the cabin under the mast or is the load carried by a bulkhead? In either case, is sounds like there has been some loss of structure which has allowed to mast to distort the deck and cause the cracks. That needs to be fixed and then some work to cut open the deck at the cracks and replace the wet core.
