I have got access to buying stainless tube and keep meaning to make a nice 2 inch diameter frame for mine so you can ski off i would cut and fabricate it myself but get a local guy to weld it though if your stuck we could do two The only problem may be you location.

Hi Ian - Just thought I'd let you have this guys number : He's a fantastic welder. I just sent him the design of what I wanted with a few basic dimensions and angles and without seeing the boat he produced this (pics below). I know you are looking for a replica if you can't get hold of an original - but I had this made out of 3" tube and it cost 30.00 less than the 1.5inch hoop that Ribeye stock for my boat! (cost around 600ex vat in total)

The company is C&B Marine, they are based in Chichester Marina and they are very quick and helpful...01243 511273..you want to ask for Chris.

They made this in two days once they had got the tubing in - and that was only as they had to special order the 3 inch...It is made out of 9 sections of tubing plus flag pole - each bend is welded in individually.

It looks very nice and the cost of tube has gone up some what we pay 5.40pence plus vat per meter for 304 marine one and a half inch dia so a guess wuold be 3inch tube to be 15 pounds meter cost being 60 pounds leaving 540 for days work not bad if you can get it.But unfortunately thats seems to be the price of things.Welder prob got 20pound hr 160 pounds matterials and bits 100 Pounds shops 100% mark up and vat

20/hour for a welder? You've gotta be joking. Lucky to make 10/hr unless you're welding pressure vessels or the like.
