How do I go about finding this barrel bolt?

The gate from the Portuguese Bridge to the foredeck needs the barrel bolt replaced.

The "plate" holding the bolt is 2" X 1". The screw holes are 1 5/16 wide. I would like to match the screw holes so as not to have to fill and re-drill.

Any ideas?

Many manufacturers cast their name into the bottoms or backs of their products. Have you found anything on the part to identify origin? You may have to get a part slightly larger to cover the old footprint.
Most of the parts used today originate in Asia, and you may find a direct replacement in the seadog, gem, etc line. There are very few domestic manufacturers anymore, Perko may be the last.

Take pictures with measurements and send them to HC.

Try this supplier. They often have original parts for foreign made boats.

Post a photo of the bolt. A local machine shop can make a bolt in an hour or two.
