Broken stay on a daysailer

while sitting on her mooring the starboard stay on my 17 foot daysailer broke. I assume it much have been frayed or corroded and I did not notice. Is there any way to fix this or does it need to be replaced? If it need to be replaced is there a good online place to buy parts?

If the starboard stay broke, I'd highly recommend replacing all of the standing rigging, as it is all pretty suspect at this point. HOME is a good place to buy stuff on-line. :)

You keep a 17' boat on a mooring?
