Dang, eBay prices are way better on a chunk of aluminum! Still as much as a whole composite setup for just material though. What boat is this on?

Stop being scared and use the factory mount.

i do have a machine that could do it,,, a 10 x 50 in knee mill that has x y ball screws servos and a servo driven knee all controlled by cnc..
while 6061 is fairly easy to machine i think you would still need some sort of anodized coating and would potentially have issues with various fasteners etc...perhaps you could just beef up the composite with a al or ss backing plate/s..

5052 will work fine also. I have my dv platform made from 5052 unpainted been on my boat for over 20 years and still supports my ass with dive gear. wash it off every time. Worst thing for Aluminum is stainless bolts or dissimilar metals in contact with aluminum in salt water, electrolysis take it toll after years.
