Many of the commercial trawler in the PNW have them so their are plenty examples to look at. Most have been added after, so the addition suport is on the outside. Could run a new extorior support mainly using the walls which you could also added exterior support as well. Maybe be the boat already has a mast foot in its original design of sails are an option.

You might also talk to a sail boat rigger as they have some basic under standing ans ideas. I already have the poles, plates and fish. We took aAlaska cruise, and many made poles out of natural straight pine poles, hand most of the support wad chain plates and wire stays like sail boats, which I thought was interesting. So walk the docks.
