Broken deck fitting

Don't know the proper name for the eyelet that holds the motormount.



One of them is broken



The cable traveler type rig for the end of the boom mounts with the motor mount bolts thru the slots in the top of those eyelets.



So far I have not found anything remotely like these in any of the catalogs. I can go to the lathe and turn two new ones and replace them if I have to, but I would like to find one of the original fittings if possible. Anyone know what the proper name for these is and maybe a place to buy replacements?

Thanks in advance for any help offered, and the boat is in the middle of being stripped, so everything looks like crud in the puictures!~

It is like a double pad-eye or pivot base but I doubt you will find the exact replacement part on such a boat.
I looked at Annapolis Pro Sailing website and they have some parts that might work for this application: http://www.apsltd.com/Tree/d273000/e271828.asp
It will probably be cheaper to make new ones if you can.

Any good machine shop can make up a set of those for you in 316L stainless or bronze. Replace both though, since it is likely that the other is about to fail.

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.

If it comes to having to make them, I have a lathe and a small mill in my garage. I thought about making up a brass bar with the ends bent up to create the eyelets.
As it is, the motormount is stiff enough that it can still be used because there is just enough of the fitting left to hold it solid in the position the other fitting holds it in.
This weekends keel problems put that way back on the back burner for now!
Thanks for the help!
