Others are right, it is a weak design and if you are ocean sailing you and the crew deserve more safety.
Yep, thanks for all the suggestions. Holland Marine has matching ones in stock that have the same footprint. They are stainless instead of cast aluminum but that's better. $50, doesn't seem bad, I ordered 4.
