Rub rail replacement

"Somehow," a strip of rub rail departed from my boat on the side that typically rests against the dock. I can find a rub rail kit from the manufacturer (Taco Industries) but it's 50 feet with end caps etc. and $350. I just need five feet to fix this "error in judgment."

Does anyone have any suggestions for locating the rub rail without the whole kit? So far, I've not been able to get a live person on the phone at Taco.

Who's the mfg of the boat? Over the years I've had to replace a couple of pieces damaged in storms against the dock same as you. Viking my mfg has supplied as required.

A picture and some dimensions would be helpful.

I prefer to replace and not patch. Oh and I would do both sides. That is just me though. It's my hobby.

I think I would try to contact Taco, and see if they have a buyer who does rub rail replacements often enough to possibly have some leftovers in the profile you are looking for.

I bought the rub rail to do a 24' Bayliner and had several feet left over, gave it to a friend looking for material for his dock around the swim ladder. There is always more in the kit than you can use for a given boat after you wrap it.

Trying to find the leftover from an individual in the profile you want is probably unrealistic...

Check Barbour Plastics, Brockton Mass. They made a lot of the rubrails for production boats and will ship direct to you.
