Where can you buy a 2 bolt lifting eye for a J/22?  

Thanks

Not sure of the J/22, but on an older J/24 you just have a beefy steel bar with holes for the bolts.  Just secure the bar on top of the existing keel bolt nuts with nuts of the same size (sandwich the bar between the nuts).  Attach your lifting strop however you wish.

We have a club member with a machine Shop who has made about a dozen just like Tillotson Pearson was issuing as replacements until about 2007. 

It is a pre-drilled Bar with a loop welded on top. 

He is about to make at least two. Yours could be number 3. 

Last batch 5?years ago went for $220 each and therecwouid be whatever it costs to ship it to you 

send me a PM if you want his contact info

Waterline systems web site shows parts but you can not order them through the web site. I have tried to contact them by phone, they only answered once and that was it. Go with Gouvernail's offer, or find a local machine shop that you trust and have them make part you need, that's what I have done.
