Bases for bow pulpit
 
The bases (four) for my bow pulpit need replacing. I have done a web search and haven''t been able to find such item. Can anyone recommend a source? I surely don''t want to have to replace the entire bow pulpit over this, but from the looks of it I need specail bases and can''t use stanchion bases.

If you have a common boat, you might take this question to a Sailnet email group for your manufacturer - perhpas some company still makes/stocks parts.

If you can''t find a source of OEM parts, see Google.com for sources such as which may have something comparable:
http://bosunsupplies.com/Deck_RailFittings.CFM
http://www.stainlessspecialties.com/stainless.htm

If you can''t find parts you need to see a local SS tubing fabricator about having custom parts made. If you don''t have a volume production boat, my bet is you''ll be facing a rude $urpri$e.

Good luck

Just checked that link to Bosun''s supplies. I had somehow missed that piece of their website. Looks like they will have something that works. Thanks so much!!!

SeaDog also has an extensive on-line catalogue of very nice SS fittings. You can order through Sailnet once you know what you need.

Go to donalmachine.com, they can laser cut any kind of custom stainless parts at a reasonable rate.
