Mast evidently not an original

I received my cousin's Cal 25 when she passed away in 2005. She sailed in Kent Narrows and stored and slipped the vessel nearby. Approximately, two years before she passed she had the mast changed to one with a rail system. So the mast is not the original Jensen cross section. The mast is oval with a rail for the mainsail and the masthead is a rectangular open ended box. The sheaves are brown resin/cloth composite and I am afraid they need replacement, the wire section of the halyard slipped off and jammed. My question is "Is there or was there a mast from another vessel that was easily substituted for the cal 25 mast?". The mainsail is a cal 25 main and fits the 25 X 11 format. The genoa is a hybrid cut from a larger sail and fitted with a bead to fit a roller furler. Its about 160 %. She was named the "Sea Spirit" by my cousin and that remains intact. The vessel sails great. I am not sure if the You tube video is still up. It was indexed " Sailing Alongside a Cal 25".
