Are you looking for something that just bolts together or is welded? What style of boat is it?

Look at conduit canopy fittings. Cheap and easy.

I made mine and would not trade it for anything pre made. Every aspect is perfect for my use. Height, fit over fuel tank, foot rest height and the fact that it fits two square Stearns throwable devise seat cushions that are cheap to replace. I turned a few bolts around as mentioned. The thread on the whole boat is here with pics of the seat/post.
