I lost the entire rig plus main and jib on a 1976 moody 33. The insurance company declared it a total loss.
I doubt that you would be able to replace the mast and keep the standing rigging. There are probably some kinks and twists in the stays now anyway. I would guess a new rig would be some where in the neighborhood of 15,000.
There is one company that will repair masts by welding a collar around the break. I forget their name.
For a new mast check out Cape Cod Shipbuilders they have a division called zepher spars. We spent 45 minutes talking to the president of the company who was extremely helpful.
Someone else recommend Metal Mast in CT.
