Source for 6 1/2" Aluminum Chocks ?

I am refurbishing my Alberg 37. The aluminum bow fitting had to be welded. The two chocks (fairleads) on the fitting appeared to be broken and cannot be welded.
I am looking for replacements preferably in aluminum to avoid corrosion issues. Center to center dimensions are 6 1/2".

I saw exactally what you're looking for at West on saturday. I'd swear they were schaffer black anodized alu closed chocks, but I can't find them on the schaffer or west site.

Go to the west on 2094 in kemah, they've got them (I think) if not blackburn may have the same old stock.
