Greetings from Buzzard Point

I actually work at Buzzard Point at the bottom end of Washington DC...I live on the Chesapeake Bay and sail on the Patuxent River off Broomes Island. I have a sweet little Siren 17 that I keep in a sweet little marina full of power boats - thats why I call her Missfit...
Lately Missfit has been having a rough go of it...earlier this summer she lost her mast when the starbord stay snapped. We were under sail - which was a bit of a shock for me and the two girls I was sailing with. I got her rigged back up again but it came off this past Saturday night while she was tied up at the dock. It's been very frustrating and I don't know if I'm going to be able to fix her...the aluminum was ripped off. Any advice on finding a new mast step would be most appreciated.

BTW. I've been sailing for a while. - In the Bahamas and northern Australia. I love boats and wish I knew a lot more about how to fix them.
