igus® - iglide® Plastic Bushings You will be able to find any plastic bearing you need here. It will cost you less than most places. They can make custom parts. I replaced my 2" ID x 2" long lower skeg bearing for $7.50 US about 5 years ago.

If you have access to a machine shop you could have one made from stock.
