54 inch teak handrails

Hello, this is my first post. I'm trying to replace the handrails on my Pearson 26', but it has an odd size (4 loop 54 inches total length). Any ideas on a place that may sell odd size teak handrails?

I would just by a piece of teak and cut out the handrail out of the new piece of teak. If you do not have access to tools, try a cabinet maker and see if they will cut. You can do all the fine sanding yourself. Just make sure the bottom of the handrail is excatly the same angle as your old one, so it will seal on the cabin top properly.

Aloha Pearson,
Check out the book, "This Old Boat," page 216/217 by Don Casey and there is a really great description on how to build them.
