Are you looking for the 2x2s, or the brackets? If the 2x2s, I would recommend just making a new set out of oak or other dense wood, using existing ones as templates for length and shaping of curves on the ends as each one is a different length and length needed depends on exactly where the brackets are mounted relative to platform height.

If looking for the brackets, look at these pics to try to find what you are looking for ... https://www.google.ca/search?q=trojan+s ... IJw#imgrc=_

Especially this one if you are looking for the lower brackets ... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Trojan-F32-Tea ... 2697872210

Of course, you should always check with Beacon first.

Made replacements for my F26 out of mahogany, using the old ones as templates. Not a difficult job -- used West System epoxy on mine, with 4 coats of varnish. They seem to be holding up well after three summers.
Motors should run. People -- not so much.

Mahogany or straight cedar.Most oak will rot like hell. Don't bother with teak.
