Bracing a wobbly handrail.

This was a pretty easy fix. All you have to do is find a 32 that is being parted out. Buy all of the handrail stanchions. Pick out the ones with the proper base angle. Trim the metal at the top. Screw and bolt into place.
They are not fastened in this photo but the owner told me that after being screwed and bolted into place they made a huge difference.

Great solution but why wouldn't you get the new braces brazed to the stantions rather than nuts & bolts? It would make a cleaner look. My opinion only.

Not so easy to one, get a TIG and argon to his boat and two, have the alignment work out if the stansions would have been removed and brought to the shop. A pair of SS bolts in each one worked out just fine.
