Please Help me Identify this Piece of Deck Hardware

I need help locating a replacement for the through deck fitting in the photo. I don't think it's a custom piece, but I just don't know who makes these. Any help would be appreciated.

Generally these are called exit plates or exit boxes.

What's the boat? Have you tried the builder? To me this one looks like the builder laid up a fiberglass housing and stuck in a stock bullseye.

You could lay up a new one using the good one (first picture) you have as a mold and reuse the bullseye from the broken one. Not too hard if you have done any glass work.

No Idea where to get one. But if all else fails you may be able to replicate something similar using a which handle pocket.

No sheave box, just an exit plate. Building a new one is an alternative although one that will require a lot of time.
