New Masthead Needed

I'm rebuilding an old boat and I need a new masthead. I've been looking around on the internet and I don't see any that will fit the mast I have. I've found plans for building my own but I can't weld aluminum. Am I just looking for retailers in the wrong places? If it helps, I'm working on a Morgan 22. The mast cross section is 4.5" x 3". The sides are flat, The front has a 1.5" radius. The rear has a 1.4" radius and the sail track. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

You can try contacting Don's Marine Salvage in Clearwater FL, they actually bought up a bunch of the spare parts form a number of local boat builders including Irwin, Morgan, and a few others. They may be able to find the exact unit you are looking for.
