I should think almost certainly corroded.

I would try soaking with penetrating oil like Plusgas (not WD40, which is really a penetrating oil) for a period between a few hours and a few days.

Try using a soft-faced mallet to tap the wall of the boom all round, going right round several times.

Last is heat. Trouble if knowing how much to apply. At this point I would take to a reliable marine engineer.

A local boatyard separated the cast foot from the mast of our SM 29. I dont think I would have wanted to watch. That was 8 years ago and no sign of any problem.
