Stainless Steel Lifeline Stanchions - 1"


SS Lifeline Stanchions - 1" OD

By far the most common on boats built in North America, 1" OD SS Lifeline Stanchions are made from 1" OD (25.4mm) polished Stainless Steel tube with a .065" wall. They have been produced with a variety of Top styles, and are occasionally, but not commonly, Tapered.
On boats built in Europe, most Stanchions are made from 25mm (.984") OD Stainless Steel tube, and are (almost) always Tapered.  See Metric (25mm) Stanchions.

If you are replacing Tapered Stanchions and are in doubt, please measure them, as 1" Stanchions Will Not fit Stanchion Bases designed for 25mm Stanchions. Metric (25mm) Stanchions will, however, fit 1" Stanchion Bases, possibly needing a wrap with Rigging or Electrical tape to fit tightly.
If you are replacing all Stanchions you can switch to a different type as long as they are the same approximate length, and the same diameter.

Note: A small number of boats have been produced with 7/8" (.875") OD Stanchions, these are available in Ring Top, and Flat Top versions on special order.


Stanchions with Integral Bases:
Stanchions are usually (and properly) separate and removable from Stanchion Bases. It is common for Stanchions, but not removable bases, to bend (when meeting pilings or other boats); we believe it is not reasonable to require a boat owner to go through the extra time, difficulty and expense of unbolting the Stanchion Bases from the deck when only a Stanchion needs to be replaced. Be advised that on many boats the Stanchion Bases were installed on the Deck before it was attached to the Hull; Stanchion Base bolts are sometimes inaccessible, being fiber-glassed over. This was an inefficient cost-cutting measure, used by only a few boat-builders. It saved (at the time) $2.-$3. dollars per unit, but ultimately cost them money (imagine the cost of Deck work involved when an entire row of Stanchions is wiped out during Transport!).

All Stanchions listed here are Stanchions only and do not include Stanchion Bases. If you have one piece Stanchions with integral Stanchion Bases (non-separable), we will try to set you up with removable units. Many of the Stanchion Bases we offer are made with the same footprint as integral units, See SS Stanchion Bases.
