Maybe use flat SS bar but try to prebend/twist the above deck portion to better align with the angle of the aft shroud?

Or, alternatively, use the flat bar but have your machineshop/welder fabricate a piece to weld to the top of it that provides the angles, as well as greater surface area for sealant.

If the eyebolt arrangement was original and satisfactory, it has the advantage of more-or-less being self aligning under load.. Also probably an easier thing to bed/seal esp if you had a SS timber washer welded under eye, and drilling a hole is more straightforward than cutting a slot.

btw... to my eye (in pics, anyway) the tabbing looks a bit lightweight? is it finished?
