Default backrest for leaning post

I want to purchase a backrest for my leaning post. The type that slides into the rod holders. Is there anyone in S. Pinellas or Manatee county that can make one? I would like for the material to match the rest of the boat interior which is white with navy blue stripes.

I would think that anyone who makes T-tops could fab it for you, its just aluminum pipe work. You/they can install a cushion and cover with fabric of your choice.

Call the Yacht Rigger in St. Pete. They have a really good aluminum guy named Brian that may be able to help you out. Then you can have the cushion made. : (727) 490-9553

Birdsall Marine design sells both a full backrest or just the folding arms that make it easy to stow. Great people and easy to work with and are probably the biggest manufacturer of leaning posts out there.
