They should be available from an Avon dealer, although it would probably be cheaper for you to get some made by a local fabricator, using 1" OD stainless tube and 2-3mm thickness flat bar. Have you got the originals to use as a pattern?

Hi mate,
Pennine Marine Skipton
Tel 01756 792335. I was quoted something like 48 each. Taking the Pi$$ I thought. But I managed to get one from a guy on here (many thanks Dan) Your best bet is to get someone to make a pair for you.

The afore mentioned dan

Take the opportunity to consider an A-frame.
That is what i done, and for circa 300, I got a single 2" frame with platform on the top, and incorporated two legs as transom supports.
Hate to say it, but looks way more professional and about as over engineered as one can make things.
The stainless is a nice touch :-) and get dome cap bolts for it, really sets it off.
