Locating stanchion bases

Hi, after an unfortunate wind-aided dock incident recently, we came up with a broken stanchion base. This is the kind that bolts sideways onto an aluminum toerail similar to those found on a Caliber or C&C. The part is cast metal, looks like galvanized steel but one of ours had been brazed back together by a previous owner so I am not sure of the metal. I've checked several websites and local marine dealers with no luck at all.

Would anyone know of a source for these parts? I do not have a good picture but can take some this weekend as we are heading out tomorrow.

Thanks!

Re: Locating stanchion bases

After a better look, I'm almost certain they are cast aluminum. I think I can redrill some new holes to make the broken one functional, but would still like to find a source for purchasing several not only to replace these two broken ones but also to have for spares. Just haven't found anything so if you can help let me know!
