Easiest of course will be two find some 2 bolt flanges the right size. This may not be easy. Second choice is a 4 bolt flange with the right bolt spacing - just cut off the extra flange material (and holes).
Another is to just put pipe threads into the existing holes.
Finally, you could buy a new manifold from Moyer. This might be your best choice as I suspect the yellow one is ANCIENT.

We have a one or two Grampian 26 folks here. Paging @PT26.
"Twice Around" - '77 Catalina 30, #511 with original A-4 & MMI manifold.
She is even happier with fresh paint on the topsides!

The yellow manifold doesn't have a threaded fitting that the rusty manifold has. I guess it is the fitting for the scavenge tube from the carburetor?
When you get this sorted out maybe studs rather than bolts (on the flange) would make work in the tight area easier?
