Mounting handrail to ss tubing

Can someone tell me where I might find a handrail like the one pictured here? The key feature is that it is built to mount to 1"ss tubing. Instead of being flat like for mounting to the deck, this one has a rounded base that spoons perfectly with the tube underneath it. [IMG][IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

not sure if the photo is going to work.

thanks
grant

I guess the photo worked!

Try a company that builds custom dodgers.

My first thoughts too, John!

Most of these grab rails are either welded on or through bolted (if they've had the ends capped and drilled/threaded) If on top of canvas I think the contouring for the rail profile is disregarded. At least on our dodger it is, and it looks OK.

We had our hand rails made when we did the doger project, they are welded on. We could not find any SS 1" hand rails long enough to use on the dodger when we were looking.
