Turns out that I had pictures the whole time. Well now there are more. Part of the series of pictures is of the hole which was needed in order to remove the port aft fastener. Naturally I used that same access port to attach the new 1/4x20 stud. In retrospect I would not include that stud.

Second that too. My originals were drilled in place at the factory. My replacements needed to be oriented correctly fore and aft and port and starboard or they would not fit. Dave 33-2 Sent from my iPhone > On Aug 9, 2017, at 12:50 PM, Josh Muckley wrote: > > Rick,

Rick, You are correct. The holes are not standard. They were apparently drilled in place. As such each one has minute differences in placement. That's why the templates are so important. I will say that despite the appearance of the wood rails the SS ones are so much stronger and easier to

I read somewhere on the forum that the holes mounting those rails are not a standard distance apart. I would have them reproduce from the original! My wife takes great pride in her varnish on those rails! I am a lucky man! Rick Paikea 37/40 Rick Rohwer 509 306 1094 > On Aug 9, 2017, at

Second on stainless. It's easier to get custom fitted than you might think. Local shop took my old ones, used them to create a hole-Template on a length of angle aluminum, then fabricated new ones on that. Perfect fit. Increased the stand off height as well. Shoulda done it sooner. Dave,

I used Whitewater for SS handrails on a J30. Turned out great. Just have to be VERY careful about measuring and sending them old ones. Your old rails may be both curved and crowned. They may "unflex" a bit once you remove them. Like Josh says, templates for the curve AND the crown will help.

Many of us have gone with stainless steel handrails. I had mine custom made by whitewatermarine.com they turned great. If you remove the old ones first and send them with a cardboard template of each side you can better guarantee the results. I don't think I have any pictures but will probably
