So I removed my rub rail last year because it needed to be replaced and now I'm trying to find new but the only thing I can find is wider and only comes clear. I talked to the anodizer in my area about changing color but he can only do 72" not 12ft. I have talked to taco and rub rails .com is there anyone else? I know rex marine had what I'm looking for but is no longer in business?
Rex Marine is in business, 909-983-1403. I should have 5/8" clear and black rubrail towards end of June again, have blue in stock, if that's what you're looking for. Have 1" now. email to [email protected], I am rarely on forums any longer.
f bomber asked me about the lip on the back of the blue, whether it would be a problem, because the blue I have presently does have the lip on the back. Figured I'd post the answer here also. I have flat back coming around the end of June.
The lip is designed to make the rubrail sit more vertical on the boat. Most or at least many boats also are a "shoebox" design where the deck fits over the hull like a shoebox lid. The rubrail with lip works ideal in this application or applications where there is a substantial angle inward right at or below the parting line.
