I got some good info from Neutron (thanks brotha) and put this together... Simple upgrade. Swapped out the upper grab bar.

What boat is the chrome bar from? I'd love to get rid of that strap for a bar. I always feel like the strap is gonna break or pull out!

I really like the aluminum grab handles on the AR195's from like '15 thru '18 or so. They're a nice large-ish square shape and are CNC'd aluminum not tubular chrome. Nice modern look to them with a good feel in the hand.

You ream the 2 inner holes to 5/16", fits right in there... The handle covers the outer holes up completely, so a little 5200 in the outer holes to prevent leaking is needed. Edit* FWIW I picked up some some big fender washers to distribute the pull on the backside of the fiberglass.
