Stanchion base (for 365 GL)

Post by Morten » Tue May 24, 2011 4:16 pm

Two of my stanchion bases have broken and I need some new ones. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem that this is a very common product and therefore, I would like to know if anyone knows where I can purchase these fittings. According to the Danish dealer it may take quite some time if I order them from the Dufour Yachts in France. I’ve also tried to google them but didn’t find any matches.
I’ll be grateful for any answer that could help me.

Hi, I own a Dufour 40 with the same stanchion base issue you have. I have made molds of the original stanchion base and now make my own. I make it with reinforced epoxy with a metal sleeve so it won't break where the pin goes into the base. I can't break these and have tried with great force. I make it pigmented gray to match the others.

If you would like to purchase some, please let me know. Each is $50 CAN - I live in Toronto - plus shipping. Order as many as you like and I will send them once they are made.
