Zodiac Futura launching wheels spare mounting lug needed

One of the mushroom / T-shaped mounting lugs for the lower end of my original Zodiac launching wheels is missing from the bottom of the transom. They are actually much longer than they look and have a slight taper that seats in a large hole in the transom.

I'm being quoted silly money to have one made on a lathe and so I wonder if anyone knows where I can buy one (I have searched) or if anyone has a boat they are breaking for spares.

Thanks

They are part Zodiac Z2862 and available from dealers at around 30/pr.

I'd try calling Ron Hale as they seem quite helpful with small parts.

If you can' find them, I am pretty sure there was a pair on my transom when I bought it. I can have a look through the boxes.

Thanks I have one on order from Ron Hale marine but it still hasn't arrived with them from Zodiac in France, so if you could look that would be great. They do leave a rather large hole in the transom, so I'm surprised they are not needed on your boat even if you don't use wheels.

Are these the ones? I don't have transom wheels and my transom has just been rebuilt. These were spare parts left over after the rebuild.

Yes those are the things. You're in Canada though?
