    Default Source for Boat Covers and Rub Rail?

    I have an 18' sleek with a blown BBC. Its finished with the exception of a cover and the much neeeded stainless rub rail. I am having trouble locating a vendor for either of these items. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    iboats.com should have a semi custom cover for that boat. If you want one that fits perfectly you are probably going to have to get one made. I used one frmo Wal-mart for a while on my Rebel. It worked OK but I certainly wouldn't tow with it. I got my rub rail from rubrails.com. I used aluminum.

    I use a cover made by "sharkskin" it has lasted at least 20 years...I am going to buy another from them.

    Mohican - That rubrail looks good. I just ordered the 3/4" aluminum. Is that what you have? The stainless was off the chart price -wise. Plus, I didnt think I would be able to make the sharp bend at the nose with the stainless.

    I'll have to check out those sharkskin covers. Thanks for the replies fellas!

    Those were my exact reasons for using aluminum. I used ALO-26 (1/2"). iboats carries sharkskin covers as well. I'd love to see your boat. Post pics if you got em.
