Bent Hand Rail Tube on Bow

Recommended Posts

Cap305

Not sure how it got damaged but I noticed a 1" or so deformity in my bow handrail the other day on my 2001 23 LSV.  Unfortunately it's not just a bend but it's a bend and a dent so it can't be removed and simply bent back into shape without fixing the dent.  Anybody ever had to track down either a replacement for these or have someone do repair and/or fabrication work for hand rails?

You could try looking on greatlakesskipper.com  Malibu dumps a lot of its old parts on there

I shoulda put that in the original post.  I hit Great Lakes, Bakes, and Boat outfitters with zero luck.  Have seen some guys use a die press spin block but it really jacks up the finish.  No clue what re-chroming that would run.  I'd love to find someone parting out an old 23LSV but that's like finding bigfoot riding a unicorn.

Could bend it back or have a good welder cut out and replace that section and always have it ceramic or powder coated. They have some that look like chrome

Might see if you can talk to someone at Malibu and figure out if they were actually building them or buying them off the shelf somewhere
