Macgregor 26 Mast

I'm coaching a friend with the restoration of a Macgregor 26 monohull. It is going well, but I've noticed that there is a fore-aft bend in the mast just above the spreaders. It's several degrees, but too small to notice unless you are looking at the mast end to end. This is a beginner day/short trip boat for him.
Question: Can this be reasonably dealt with in the installation of the standing rigging, or even just left in place, or does he need a new mast? With Macgregors no longer built, but their daughter building similar boats, and with Dwyer mast probably having the extrusion if one has to be made up, it appears that there are options. What is your judgement?
