I have worked out terms with the OEM manufacturer of the "Z" legs & placed an order to be delivered to Nautical Lumber Co. on or before July 31.
Brown in color as the originals.
Pre sale terms:
$225 a set free shipping to lower states.
Order and make payment of $125.00 deposit to Nautical Lumber by July 12, 09.
Ballance is due at time of shipping them to you.
After July 12, 09 the price will be $250 a set + shipping.
Hope this is of help to those who need these.

Far be it from me to suggest a price for the Z legs, but I often notice it is one of the more "in demand" items. I for one could use a set, but the price deters me because of what it will cost to construct the rest of the seat.
The cushions cost around $189, the teak back rest is $150 on a good deal and upwards to $400 I have noted. The pipes that pivot are over $200 so with the legs at $225 it adds up quick. Still less than a replacement seat from BW though as I priced it at $1,700. If I had not gone and had a seat base fabricated I would be purchasing these legs. I paid $170 for the fabrication just for comparisons sake.

Regardless of what the nooby says, I believe that you are doing a great service to the Whaler owner community. Over time, there will be a lot of grateful folks looking for lost parts from these timeless boats and willing to pay a reasonable price. I'll bet that the remanufactured version is a little more like OEM than a 'fabricated' version. Its encouraging to see someone trying to add to the wealth of the Whaler community instead of taking away.

$225, with free shipping, sounds like a very fair price to me, and a great chance to get a brand new OEM set for those looking for, what can be a very hard to find item. There is no substitution for anyone doing an accurate restoration.
