SS Pulpit and Pushpit

My stainless bow pulpit is damaged from Katrina and I am considering having a new one made, same for the stern rail. Any body have any experience with a firm that can produce a quality stainless work?

I've never used them but I know a few satisfied people who have. Where is the boat?

if your pulpit and or stern rail are still intact but some of it them is bent why not get a price/find someone to fix the damaged sections only. i did this up-here in the N.E. and saved half over new fab. they just cut out the bad section welded in new tube and then sent it out for polishing. other than a very slight wave in the finish you cannot tell it was sectioned. if you check other boats carefully you will see that even reputable co. products are done this way!

mike d is right sometimes thay can be fixed. but as this is what i do for a living
it may not always be possabul , at my shop we do all the polishing in house
and you will not find the seam.
