Wanted: Stanchion bases

A long shot here: I'm redoing my lifeline configuration and trying to source a couple of used Schaefer stanchion bases. They are ridiculously expensive new, so I thought I'd ask the list if anyone had a couple of used bases they'd like to sell. These are the type with a bail on the base that supports the base and can also be used as a attachment point for a block. Any suggetions on where to find these used would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, Gaurhauer is a lot less expensive. That looks just like the ticket, less than 1/2 the price and looks identical to what I already have. Thank you very much!

Rudy at D & R Marine has them in 0º, 2º, and 4º increments. Garhauer has them only in 0º and 4º. The price is comparable (+$2) to Garhauer.

See DR Marine Product List

Re: Wanted: Stanchion bases

One of the neat thing about Garhauer is that they will do a custom bolt pattern, bracing and base angle at no extra charge. I had them price making bases to precisely match my South African custom welded bases, but with heavier base plate and sturdier flat bar gussets, and they quoted an identical price to the one for a stock base. Sure beat dealing with a mismatched bolt pattern.
