Are you talking about your Hunter 25 or some other boat. You really should say what boat you're talking about in the post, as it makes it a lot easier to discuss. More information is better than less.
As RTD and Faster have pointed out, you really should unstep the mast, to prevent the mast and rigging from damaging the cabin top any further. You should probably also post some photos of the damaged areas.
I'd highly recommend you read the POST in my signature, since it will help you get more out of your time here, like explaining how to write a good OP... post photos, etc.
The best way to post photos is to use a photo sharing website, like flickr.com or photobucket.com and then link to the photos using the IMG tags provided by them.
Have you looked at the bulkheads in the cabin. If the stringers and floors in the boat have rotted, there's a good chance that the bottom of the bulkheads are also rotted. If you're going to fix the boat up, best to do all of that type of work at the same time.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
