    Default Rub rail ideas

    What is a good rub rail to use? The one that was on my boat was 3/4 inch tall aluminum with a rubber insert. Seems all I can find is 1 inch or taller, and being that they all come in 12 foot lengths, it is big $$ to ship.

    Anybody have any good ideas?

    I ordered from my local West Marine and the shipping was only 12.00 on 8- 20' lengths of railing. It would have been atleast a couple hundred if I would of had it delivered to my door since it has to come on a freight truck.


    I picked it out first online from Taco Marine and then gave West Marine the part numbers of the items I wanted. Here is the link;

    I also had the aluminum with rubber insert and changed to the white rigid vinyl with stainless cap. It looks so much better now.

    shipping is the big problem I have found out, have you tried www.rubrails.com ? I think they have down to 1/2"

    I have looked at both websites. I am having a hard time finding an aluminum rail that is smaller than 1 inch. Does anybody have any pictures of their rub rails? Its hard to tell what the rail will look like on the boat from a profile picture.

    Maybe I should look at getting an aluminum one piece rail?

    Here is a picture of my boat
