If you can't get a suitable generic one from ASAP or similar, Marlexmarine do Stuart engine spares, could be worth a try.
IIRC, the original is made from perforated brass sheet. Ebay has many offcuts of thin perforated stainless steel, various hole sizes, at cheap prices. You might consider making a suitable tube out of this.

For the 20 years I've had this boat the strainer has been a rolled up piece of plastic mesh, and it works very well: pull it out, unroll, knock the muck off, reinstall and carry on.
