Where can i buy stainless grab handle?

Hi, I have been trawling the internet without success looking for a stainless steel grab handle for my Ribs jockey console.There are plenty of handles on the net but I just can't find what I'm looking for.
What I need is a handle similar to the type which form the backrest of the seat.In other words quite long and & its to be bolted onto the front of the console horizontally .I cant fit a grab handle onto the top of the console as theres a chartplotter fishfinder there, so there isnt room.
Thanks all
Jon

ebay - "stainless grab rail" brings up quite a few. I bought a couple of the 'osculati' make recently and they were cheap and reasonable quality.

stainless steel grab handle

Guys, thanks for the imput but none of those are any good .All the ones I have found are like the ones you have given details of & reason they are no good is they all would have to go on the top of the console & there just isnt room there because of the plotter.If you imagine the handles you have given details of but with longer downward legs with horizontal holes ,so they can be bolted onto the vertical face of the front of the console.
Hope that explains what I'm after a bit better

You mean like this:

If not, a picture saves a thousand words. Draw what you're after and post it on here.

Hooray! yes boilermaker, exactly! Was that off the shelf or was it made up? Biffer i will contact you with measurements etc. I'm not fussed whether its off the shelf or made up as custom, obviously price comes into it.This is for my mates boat that I'm helping him with as hes even more clueless than me!
