While most machine shops could make them for you, I wouldn't recommend doing that without consulting a marine architect. Your boat was designed to have its rig in a certain position and moving it may cause serious issues.

I'd point out that the bulkhead in question is clearly structural, and needs to be replaced before you can use the boat.

It would help if you said what kind of boat you had, since there may be a known fix for the boat that other owners have come up with.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
