New grab rails on Pilot 34 hardtop

Thought I'd share pics of the new grab rails. The previous owner had installed flimsy ones using bimini hardware. Much better now!

That is an essential addition to any Pilot 34. Mine came with a vertical support made of bimini fittings and tubing, installed a little aft of where you mounted your handle, but I added a small grab handle near the M in Mainship on your pic. Makes it much easier/safer to go forward.

I love posts like this where members share their upgrades with photos. I do feel, however, that Mark Price is still the champion in this area.

Isn't it something that almost any design seems to be missing an obvious feature like that? The difference between stepping out of the cockpit with the security of that hand hold must be enormous, especially in a roll.
