Mast Step for sale- cheap

I unstep my mast a few days ago for obvious reasons. But this is what a shabby installation job looks like. This home made (welded together plate) step is only 14 years old and keel stepped.

Keel stepped masts need a place for water to drain w/o soaking the works in stagnate water. I don't know who installed this but they shouldn't be working on boats.
Rant over!

Sorry about that Del. A lot of work to resolve an easily foreseen problem.

Here's the new mast step, sitting on a piece of 5/32" G10 material and all insulated from SS contact. As well, it's sealed to the SS & G10 plates, no liquid can get under it except for the three drain passages.
