I disdain handrails that are wobbling. Give me something sturdy, giving confidence. That doesn't mean rubber-covered wire railings (most common on sailboats) nor rinky-dinky metal railings of many "trawlers." Maybe it's just me with less than average balance.
I'm thinking of spanning the gap between our Albin-25's bow pulpit and the wooden handrails atop the pilot house with a pair of SS rails extending forward horizontally from above the pilot house windscreen, then bending downward to anchor points atop the front of the house. Bending low to grip the existing wooden rails atop the cabin is awkward.
