NOW REPAIRED aluminium stanchion foot for F26

I have a damaged aluminium stanchion foot, probably original, that I need to replace, but they aren’t made any more. Marked Sowester. Approx dimensions between the three bolt hole centres are 55mm between the two outboard ones and single inboard is 75mm from each inboard. Fits Stanchion about 25mm at base.  Photo of intact version of fitting attached.

Does anybody have one of these spare I can buy or know where I could find one? Thanks!

I managed to get one a few years ago from Marinescene (might be worth asking them?), but can't see any, anywhere, at the moment.   They do have a stainless one - the bracket looks a bit bigger, but they don't have the hole centres on their website.   Maybe try the boat breakers at Gosport.   

Other than that, your best bet might be to get yours repaired.

Well done Simon.   Not sure why this didn't come up for me!

That link has now expired, but has been re-listed: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/364420854881     He has two available, so well worth somebody getting one as a spare.

Hopefully Richard was able to get one.
Tempting to get the other but not sure I need any more boat spares
I have enough of those both sides of the Atlantic smile

Is one of you planning on bidding on this item? It would be best to avoid us bidding against each other and inflating the price.

Re: NOW REPAIRED aluminium stanchion foot for F26

Thanks to you all for responses which I have only just seen as I didn't receive notification despite having subscribed to the topic... As it happens I have been able to get both the stanchion base and the pulpit repaired and refitting should be completed next week. For information the company is Latbros Marine based on Hayling Island, latbros.co.uk and they have been pretty quick and efficient - of course the proof of the pudding...!
Andy, I haven't bid on EBay, so go ahead if it's what you are also after.
