Get in the yellow pages. Must be loads in Bristol who could do one for you.
Don't go thinking you need a 'marine specialist' to fabricate it, although make sure you specify 316 grade stainless, otherwise it will rust. Oh and get them to polish it up afterwards.

It'll be worth asking in some of the smaller bike shops in Bristol-they'll know who's good and local that won't kink the tubing while bending it.

It might be worth buying the tubing and some bends from a tube supplier and getting it welded up into one instead if you're not looking for a major work of art. THe welds will clean up easily enough. I'm not rure if you can get bends in 316 though.

Try these guys for stainless polishing. All my mates use him because he's not horribly expensive and does a good job.

Are you looking for 2 outside diameter tube and do you have drawing/sketch?

& what do you want to do with it, lights etc or tow?

Just a tip given to me by a friend. Go to B and Q or equiv. and buy 2 inch PVC pipe and neccessary fittings and the solvent glue. Using just a hacksaw you can quickly fabricate your own design to fit your boat. Take it to a pipe bending/welding company and get a quote to copy it in Stainless, or you could use Ally. and paint.
