Anyone know of a professional alloy mast straightening service?

I broke a shroud a while ago whilst gybing in fairly wild conditions and
my insurance company (who shall remain nameless) says (paraphrasing
here) it's a wear and tear issue on the shouds and I should have looked
after them. They will not buy me a new mast or give me anything towards
one but they will pay to have it straightened. Any ideas?

I know a proffessional straigtening service, there found in
your local area and called - A Gate post.

Funny, not particularly helpful.

Well it was actually good advice if you look at what Mr Noble posted...
and that was what I was pointing you towards. i.e either try and do it
yourself and don't tell any one, or make a more robust argument to your
insure. Of course the third option would be to take that very same gate
post and do a proper job on the mast. Of course that last statement
doesn't mean I am advocating defrauding your insurer at all.
