I replaced all the hand rails on my Hunter 27 back in 1983, and made matching ones inside too, to hide the through bolts. Carbide cutters for rounding them over cost quite a bit back then, but are cheap now. You can save a lot of teak if you make a pair by staggering them and interlocking them on the board. You just have to saw them out using a jig saw.

That's the most frugal way of doing it, your typical 'stacked' method is easier, but wastes a LOT of material, and -needs- a much wider board.
This way you can get great results with narrower material, which is often a lot cheaper.

I was at Don's this Saturday for a transmission cable. I also looked in their teak trailer for hand rails. There were a few one and two loop rails, but nothing larger. They have plenty of teak scrap boards & odds-n-ends which one could use for projects (got me thinking about making a Dorade box).

Found a cheaper source of replacement teak rails

Home Page - Custom Teak Marine Woodwork

sells the replacement 75 inch long 12 inch on center rails for $104 each plus $26 for shipping to maine. So total was $234 for the set

The owner Dave Shuler seemed pretty decent and the shop is in Fla.

All the best
