Wanted: Pair of short side rails for a 25-Revenge Walk Thru.
Here is an example:

Just make them. They are nothing but four 60 degree fittings and some bent stainless steel tubing. Any canvas shop can do that for you.

Tom, I may just do that. If you ever get a chance, could you post the dimensions of the OEM rails?

Newt, there was a picture here somewhere , that the owner went the extra distance to the sloped area by the bimini support on his Revenge. It is an option when going to the canvas shop, only need one bend in the stainless!It looked real nice and gav ebetter protection.....Jack

The dimensions for my OE factory installed grab rails (which were part of the Full Width Stern Seat option on the Revenge 25 Walk Through) are as follows:
Height to top of tubing: 5-3/4" (it varied a bit; not a super even installation.)
Length as measured from centers of rail bases: 28-3/4"
Because the grab rails cant inwards a bit, the bend is necessarily a little more than 60 degrees. I estimate the bend to be 62 degrees.
The radius appears to have been made around a 6" bending die. It would actually look nicer is the bend were a bit crisper.
The tubing is 7/8".

You can buy those grab rails from CMI up there in MA for about $200/pair.

Thanks for the info guys. I figured I would try for a used set before I had a set fabricated.
I am actually considering having a longer set of rails fabricated. My V-20 revenge has full length rails that extend from the cabin superstructure all the way back to the stern seat. I find the rails very useful for keeping the kids in the boat, providing firm hand holds, mounting my BBQ, mounting rod holders, tying off fenders, etc. The 25 Revenge that I picked up has no rails at all so I have a blank slate to work with. The only thing is, I do want to install a forward set of flush mount rod holders, so a 2/3 length rail may be the ticket.

I just designed a pair of 66" long, 12" high welded stainless rails for my Revenge 22. I think once they are done they will have an OEM look and provide additional safety to my Revenge. Of course the real reason to have them fabricated is for additional rod holder mounting locations.
I just sent the drawings out to several shops for quotation so I do not know how much they will be yet. If you are interested I can email the drawings to you in JPEG format. Just let me know.

I just received the first quote back at $550 for the pair.

Rodger, I would like to see your rail design. Please send the pictures.
Ron, I replied to your email.

I would be interested in those plans too. Thanks in advance.

Did you see Newtauk1's post in Marketplace (rail fabricator)?
Sounds like they would be a good source. Got J O's number?

Here is a link to the side rails I designed and had built for my Revenge 22. They turned out great will be a great place to mount my rod holders!

My drawings for the Whaler OEM SIDE rails (as opposed to GRAB rails) for 18' and 25' hulls, measured from the factory equipment on my hulls, are published on Whaler Central.

All set. A forum member sold me a set of rails shortly after I started this thread.
