The work you did is amazing. Hopefully i don't have to go that far yet. I sealed all of the deck joints and everything looks good. I attached a picture of my tang which is different than your setup. Who would you recommend for the stainless fabrication? Also, did you repower your motor, if so what did you end up with? Its a great boat we just motor sailed her for the first time and it was awesome.
If you are in NJ, look up marine fabricators. Don't go to regular welder because he may not comprehend marine concepts. Yeah that aluminum tang looks like it has very little "meat" to support the through-bolt. I would not send that somewhere. Just find a local fabricator or a rigger and have him make new one. Didn't you say you are getting new rigging? That is a big job. 16k just for wire and turnbuckles is what i paid.

The first time I motor sailed, I was leaking more fuel out the bottom of my tanks than the engine was consuming . My engine was replaced in 1991. Ford Lehman North East 90HP was put in. That is different from SP 90 so while American diesel was helpful, they could not supply any of the marinized parts. My engine mounts were crap. 5/8" studs and one was broken, and the others were very rusty from previous owner almost sinking the boat. That's probably why all my tanks were leaking on the bottom as well.

I did do quite a bit of work on the engine and shaft/transmission.

Here are few threads on my engine endeavors.

Re: flying dutchman fd-12

Below are my new tang pics.

Now that I think about it it was https://www.neyachtrigging.com/ that did the tangs. But at the time I was at Brewer greenwich bay and they called them for me. They dealt with it so i was never in touch with the rigger who did the seized tang removal and fabrication. So I cant really give you any names and i am not sure they would remember the job. Brewer greenwich bay got acquired by Safe harbor so I am not even sure what is going on there.

I had a different rigger re-spec and make the new rigging. All hyan stuff. But he did not make nor deal with the tangs. It was 2 separate jobs, $$$.
