Answer

Jim- Have the same boat- unless you want custom rails made we had no luck matching, and we looked for a long time. We ended up removing the old rails and patching/gelcoating the holes- we used four six loop 63" for the main cabin, two on the outside and two on the inside, matching the deck rails with the rail on the cabin ceiling in roughly the same position as the original rails, and placing the 4 loop 43" rail on the forward deck, with a small space in between the rail ends. The forward rail does not have an inner rail to connect to on the C&C, just lag screws. To bend the rails to match the shear, take the original rails, run a line from end to end (or 63" along the rail to match the new rail length), and measure the distance from the midpoint of the rail to this line, and you have the necessary offset. Cut a scrap block of wood twice this distance. Take two replacement rails side by side, tie one end together, place the spacer block at the midpoint, and lash the other end of the rails with line and some bending tension to start the bending process. Drop the rails overboard to soak in salt water to soak for a day or two at a time, check occaisionally, and tighten the end lines as necessary until the ends touch to complete the bending process. The rails will develop a passive bend soaking in the salt water to match the shear- Good luck- Walt

Jim, I recently installed these hand rails on my boat. When I did it I through bolted them. To do this I pre drilled the holes in the rails on a drill press so they would be strait. Then I dry fitted them to the cabin top. Then I removed them and drilled oversized holes in the outer layer of glass and the core but not the inner layer of glass. I filled the holes with thickened epoxy to seal the core form any water intrusion. Then I redrilled the holes and reinstalled the rails with lots of sealant. Most C&C's have balsa cored decks so this is a very important step. I hope this helps with your installation. Eric

Answer

It might be hard to find an exact replacement. I filled in the old mounting holes w/ epoxy and then created new mounting holes to accomodate the new rails. I have bben pleased with the quality and fit of these rails.

Answer

I assume you are referring to the curve or bow required to match the curvature of the boat. I built a simple fixture using a 2x4 board with bolts at each end. Then I clamped the center of the handrail to the 2x4 and adjusted the bolts toward the handrail ends to "pre-curve" the handrail while mounting. I can send you a photo of it if you supply an email address. Bill Morgan

DO YOU HAVE MOUNTING SPECIFICATIONS FOR THIS PRODUCT?

Asked on 07/01/2018 by RON from LIBERTY, TX

Top Answer

There are no mounting specifications for this product. Commonly, they can be mounted by screwing into the handhold from the back side of the mounting surface, or by drilling and countersinking, and the hole can then be bunged over if desired once mounted.
