Broken mast steps are a know problem for Landfall 38s. When I unstepped my mast, the old step lifted out in two halves.
Wally Bryant describes having a new one fabricated and welded together. I spoke to a welder about having a similar one fabricated, and was advised to have one CNC milled from a solid block as it was a "set it and forget it" operation whereas welding was going to be labor intensive. I did some of the leg work myself, and in the end spent about $300 for a new fabricated step. I have a write up online which includes a CAD drawing that was used to create the CNC step file.
