Stanchions

Hi, Almost all the stanchions on Songeur have been replaced with stainless ones. The boat still has two aluminium ones left and one of these is broken. It is my intention to replace these but I can not find a supplier of stanchions in NZ which match the hole centres and style of the originals. The current stainless ones match the aluminium ones, I feel it would be cost prohibitive to have two manufactured and wonder if anyone knows of a supplier in the UK who has a similar product.

Thanks Andrew, they are the ones, unfortunately they are still aluminium alloy and not stainless. Also the price is high once one converts NZD to the pound. I may just have to modify a product available here.

I have to replace a stanchion that I managed to break when mis-judging an approach to moor alongside - unfortunately I didn't take measurements when at Aeolus yesterday: can someone please advise which size I need to order?
