12 Volt Euro Socket

On CIRRUS, my beloved Omega 36, I have two 12 volt power jacks, one just behind the helm (as part of the YANMAR control panel) and another at the NAV station. The round plugs are about 31mm across with two posts, slightly offset from the middle and about 9mm apart from each other. I'm having trouble locating a replacement male plug to fit these bad boys and I thought I'd seek advice here before giving up and converting both power connectors to standard American cigarette lighter jacks. I took the jack into an electronics specialty store in Anchorage and the guy just looked at me and said he'd never seen anything like that before.

ARRGGHHH!!!!
