Best source for new or used lifeline stanchions?

Any ideas on where to find a new or used replacement lifeline stanchion?

I have a 1973 Newport 27, and I'm in Seattle...

One of my stanchions just got seriously bent, and I'm looking to replace it as economically as possible...

Thanks!

Garhauer has stanchions for around $30 - $35. If you need a base, I would recommend Tops In Quality.

When ordering the stanchion from Garhauer, be sure to specify the number of holes for the lifelines and their respective heights.

No, I just liked the style of the Tops In Quality and they were a little bit cheaper. I suppose if your just replacing one, it doesn't really matter. I was replacing six when I ordered these parts. The bigger issue is to make sure the base matches your current one.

One thing to make a note of: bases are typically ordered at a certain angle, usually from 0 to 6 degrees, to match your deck camber. You'll want to specify that when you order.
