Have you tried the local shoe repairers/ key cutters? Looks like something they can copy.

Well If you are going to leave it in the boat in salt conditions it will eventually rust but its going to be a spare you said, suggesting its kept elsewhere. It wont rust much even on the boat as no doubt it will be in your pocket when the engine isnt running

Boat keys are truly pitiful in terms of actual security, I've started a boat with anything from a mini hacksaw blade that was in the toolbox to the mini Swiss army knife I keep on me, just wiggle and turn. You could file a bodgey replacement out of any old scrap metal and it'll probably do the job
