backing plate

I need a backing plate to install a bracket Garelick dive ladder. Anybody have a suggestion as to where around here to find an approximately 4"x5.5" piece of stainless? And/or a metal fab place to make one and drill the holes through stainless easier than I can?

I know your preference is stainless, mine would be also, but if you’re
interested I’ve got several pcs of 5/16 X random alum.

I might have a suitable piece in my shop, I’ll look tomorrow. If not, Raymond Martin, Martin Marine Design and Fabrication in Hardeeville can fix you right up and mail it to you.

Buddy of mine re-did a 15 whaler a few years ago, he turned it into a center console, was able to purchase a new one from SeaFox not sure if the factory will still sell them direct or not. But may be an option.

Lowes and HD sell flat stock Aluminum! I used some for backing plates for a pedestal seat I installed!
