We had a big storm come through up here in AK and the boat was heaving against the lines resulting in that through hole getting folded up and the lashing horn bent about 120 degrees. First of all, I don't even know what to call this part, and more importantly, where might I be able to find a replacement. I have looked at all the usual places with no luck. I appreciate any advice.
Pictures please. Of the damaged one and of the one on the other side, that should still be undamaged.
How was it tied? What tie was stronger than the horns of the Hawse?
