I'd like to have a set of custom grab rails bent up. They would be about 26" long and 9" high. Anyone have a source for suppling/bending 1.25 SS tubing?

thanks in advance for your help

So your going to make your grab rail out of 1.25" diameter stainless?! That stuff is hard to bend. You will have to find a shop with a large bender. I don't know about MD but I'm sure you could get my local shop that I think I told you about before to bend it up for you. Give them a call: Bob Picot Inc. 206-632-6899 http://bobpicot.com/

We have a great shop down here that builds custom t-tops leaning post rails anything out of stainless tube. It is "Custom Marine Fab." in New Bern NC at 1-252-638-2920 ask for Ronda. A freind of mine had a t-top that had hard use running to the gulf stream in 5's for 10 years. The owner of CMF saw the top at the fuel dock and noticed a crack at one of the joints. He demanded to know where the boat was kept during the week so he could come and repair it at no cost. Great guy to to business with!
