Super Sail Kit Spar?

I have a 1973 Super with sail kit, and have sadly lost the upper spar on the lateen boom.

It is about 54" tubular aluminum with an extruded channel for the sail.

Any suggestions for replacement?

I have used aluminium bar extrusion with a c shape channel made to take a bolt rope as in awnings. You can pop rivet this to an anodised tube section e.g. boat hook to make a spar with a channel to take the sail bolt rope .
