316 S.S. Grab rails or towel racks.........

We have a great deal on about 800 of the S.S. grab rails as pictured. Big box marine outlets are getting about $20.00 for the 12" one and over $30.00 for the 18". I needed a few towel racks for my little sloop but was unable to use the studded type because I couldn't get behind the bar to secure the washer and nut. I solved this problem by taking some scrap teak and one of those band saws pictured below and cut out some 3" wafers, drilled a counter sink hole in the back so the nut and washer would be flush with the back, used my router to put a pretty edge on the teak, drilled a small hole top and bottom and mounted a towel rack in my galley and head. A little sanding and varnish will finish things off nicely. Give a shout if you want to order a few of these 1st quality grab rails? Several dozen 24" to 36" in length also available at very modest prices...

  1. Great thing to have grab rails at our bathroom. It is really a good idea to provide as many safety features in this part of our house, since almost all families have elders at home, yet it is also for young kids for them to be guided.
