I've been building the woodwork for the restoration of a few Whalers and I have a brand new RPS backrest for sale.

Made of premium Burmese teak with SS rod holders and chromed handles. Lists for $720 at Whaler dealers without hardware.

I am offering it for $400.00 plus shipping to Continuous Wave members.

Email me at or call me at 786-387-2169 for more information.

Beautiful wood.

That's a first class piece of workmanship, and worth every penny of your price. You should do well selling those seatbacks. Almost wish I needed a new one!

Thanks for the compliment. It was a chore to find the select Burmese Teak for it. I now have a source for more. The pictures don't show just how nice a color and grain this variety of teak has compared to the commercial grades of Plantation teak that are being used for most teak items today.

Hello Bob. It was nice talking to you today. After measuring the interior of my 1982 15 Sport, I think that 34 1/2" will be too wide for a leaning post/backrest. I fully understand and agree that this measurement is best for two side by side adults, however, it just does not leave enough room for walking aft. Your product is beautiful, and if I can incorporate one into a leaning post at about 30", I would like to have you build it. Thanks for your time and Happy Holidays. zotcha.

BTW, it would be a sin not to use some of the mahogoney left by my Dad, but that Burmese Teak is really tempting! I'm going minimal wood in the 1988 (just enough to still say "classic") but I'm leaning toward teak, tongue, or danish oil this time.

If you will send me a rough drawing, but with exact dimensions, I can will work up an estimate on building a custom backrest for you. I can work in any material you chose including Starboard.

Email your drawings or ideas to or call 786-387-2169 and I'll be glad to discuss your ideas with you.

Thanks Bob. Give me a little time to get the interior layout. I think I'm leaning toward 28 to 30" maximum length overall. Appreciate the assistance. zotcha.

A work of art by a Master Carpender. Too nice for my boat.
That thing will last forever. Great price certain to increase the boat value.

I may be in touch for small custom work later.
