Hello, i recently bought my 1991 31-2 and it was damaged in the last storm. I am looking for railings on the starboard side. Any advice would be appreciated

sorry, but do you mean stanchions when you say railings?  Or new railings for the cockpit?  Either way you need to find a good Stainless Steel guy/place and have them repaired or built new and replaced. I had my main 4 stanchions all rebuilt at the bottom with new support and bigger deck plates as they were all bent in a good bit from pushing and storage through the years.

Yes, the port side stanchions and the rear railings. I guess i need to find a fabricator. Thanks for your help. Also, any thoughts on replacing the rub rail?

removing the stanchions isn't that bad EXCEPT for the bow ones...they're buried in the V-berth. I'm planning on either matching up the nuts and drilling if I can, or cutting out a square piece to access the 4 nuts, then cover the hole with some nice teak or such to hide them. There is a special tool I understand that Pearson used to hold the 4 nuts in place through the gap that does exist, but no luck finding one.  The Railings should be somewhat easy to remove, although I haven't had to do those yet. As for the rub rails, I'd love to replace mine too, but that's a job I just ignore right now. Again, My guy could make me up what I needed if I ever did replace them.  Just look for a local marine Stainless Steel guy.   We have 2 in Southern Ontario, one in Barrie and my guy near Niagara Falls.  I'm sure there are others around too, but these 2 deal in Marine SS repairs and new installs. Good Luck!!!
