Stainless Handrails

Anyone have any suggestions for a source for stainless handrails - like many here, I would like to avoid having teak handrails to maintain on deck.

So far I have found them at Hamilton Marine and am awaiting a quote from Kato Marine.

I would prefer to find one with one through bolt and not three screws.

Thanks!

Re: Stainless Handrails

Not sure what you want here. Do you want to build your own, or buy prefabricated rails to fit your boat? If you are going to build your own, go to an industrial source of thin wall stainless steel, not to a marine supplier. I made stanchion and wire rails out of 1" stainless. It works.

I agree with tekthul but there's plenty on eBay.

I'm ok with prefab or making them myself. My post was meant for pre-fab type suppliers ... any thoughts on suppliers who offer a through bolt base vs 3 screws and backing plates?
