Hard To Find Cam Cleat - Replacing

Hey guys, the one of the cam cleats for my jib sheet broke. I own a Hurley 20 and I would have like to replace it with something close to the original part, but the difficulty of finding the proper size has now made me open to any cam cleat that will fit the existing holes. The whole piece consists of a cam cleat and a hole for the sheet to lead through mounted on a small rectangular flat piece with four holes to receive the screws that hold the piece on the rail of my cockpit. The two screws that drive down through the cam cleat are 2" 7/16 distance apart on center. There are two more screws on the back of the flat mounting piece that are approx 2" 7/8 apart, but that doesn't even really matter. I just need a cam cleat with the holes 2" 7/16 apart.

Anyone know how I can find the right size online?

When I needed a replacement cam cleat for my main traveler, I found a good used one at the local sail loft at a real bargain price. You would be surprised what they have in their parts supply areas.

right on. I was just in the marine consignment shop of Long Island...its like a boat junk yard, so many goodies in there. But all the cam cleats were to small to fit my application. I really dont want to drill new holes.
