Appreciate the thought though!
Im understand you mate.
However, I don't like welding on a deck if I don't have to either, so I'm thinking that you could make it by using a piece of 3/16" angle iron 1 1/2" wide on one side X 3" or whatever you need to get close to the blades without hitting the sails on the highest lift blade you use. Then, all you would have to do is drill two holes and bolt it in. If it didn't work, touch up the holes with any paint you have and then install rubber grommets to keep them from rusting or the touch-up paint from chipping off.
