Sadly, that is unobtaineum. I've seen chrome-plated ones (Martin Marine North Vancouver) but your best bet is the breakers. I've seen a couple of ads for GBS being broken.

The spring loaded pin could be fabricated by a machinist or a crafty DIY dude.

I agree. The pin would simply be rod, the handle to release the pin could threaded and then loctited , the easy to remove stuff, NOT the permanent lockers. The easy stuff will still hold tenaciously but at least the pin will be removeable without breaking it.

A knob could be fabbed by using a S.B. nut soldered on and then ground/filed to round. Don't use a good wheel on a grinder but rather a sanding disc.
Yes the grinder wheel can be cleaned but the wheel will load up take some life out of it.

Silicon bronze rod should be suitable. Maybe even a cutdown LONG bolt or two.
Some chanderies will have bolts and rods in short lengths. A good FASTENER house should also have some if this stuff. Actually if you have and rigging specialist houses that do building/repairs they may be able to help.



Any friends with a lathe? Actually, just a drill press to drill the pin and help start the tap straight . The rest could be done with hand tools.

The pin does not supply any structural strength to the railing. You could just mount the bronze bit so it's an interference fit and it also has gravity to help keep it in place. I had one or two of those where the pin was stuck and I never repaired it because it wasn't a convenient latch.

Some used equipment places you might check:
Home . The Boaters' Resale Shop of Texas

marineconsignement.com

https://www.marineenginesalvage.com/

Marine Connection Liquidators

https://www.spencersmarinesupply.com/about-us

There are others that I am not even aware of. Ask around if not done already at marinas, repair shops especially detailing shops. MAYBE they know of someone.

Boltdepot.com has all kinds of fasteners and threaded & unthreaded rod in silicon bronze. Appears to be good stuff and not very expensive. I've bought from them several times and got good service.
