You could also check with the spar manufacturer, if you know who it is.

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.

Cool is right. Check with the builder W. D. Schock — Setting the Standard Since 1946
Unlike most of the builders of past decades they are still in business.

If the mast is off, pull the mast head and take it to a welder that does alumimun and ask for a quote on fixing it. Probably cheaper, and even possible to improve on the design with a good welder. Thats what I would do.
Best of luck

I had a custom mast head made for my santana 21 - the one that came on the boat looked like crap and wasn't well made

I'd actually like to redo the one I had made and make some small changes to it as well.

I've done lots of aluminum casting repairs, even when pieces were missing. Any welding shop with a TIG machine set up for aluminum (hi frequency and AC) should be able to put it back together just fine. It could be MIG welded too, but generally that would be sloppy job unless the guy doing it is very good.
