reattaching broken port light

This was welded onto the port bow pulpit and broke through pressure with the dock lines during a huge storm and very low tide. I know nothing about welding, isn't there an easy way to reweld stainless to stainless?

Someone was talking on our boat the other day about climbing their mast and doing some sort of welding to reattach their antenna whose mounting had broken. They made it sound like a piece of cake and I wish I had asked them more about it when they were here.

Just call in a welder that works on marine stuff and I'm sure he can do it for ya.

A tig welding setup would be the best setup. If your pulpit is EZ to remove it would save you some $$$. Also you could reseal the bolt holes, which is necessary on occasion or after great stress...................._/)
