for sail boat (old) need 2" height ? any thoughts
This is the only rubrail JD carries that is that wide. The shape is different however. https://www.jamestowndistributors.com/userportal/show_product.do?pid=56893
I would like to mount the Rub Rail upside down so that the lower lip on rail overlaps the top of the gunwale. Is there a particular problem that would cause?
I dont know if I can answer because I dont know what boat he is using. Depends on where the fasteners are.sorry i couldnt be more help. Mine works great but in the upright position
Doesn'the sound like a good idea.Presumably water and crud would get under the lip unless you sealed it which may not work very well. Trapped water would be an issue in cold climes. Also think that it will damaged quite easily.
I have to say no the lip is to cover the seam on upper deck and lower hull where they come together the screws holds them in place as well as the rub rail
can you tell me exactly which rub rail will fit on my 1986 century grande300.i want the flexible rub rail with black tube insert?Tks Steve
The rail fit perfectly on my 2001 30 foot Mirage, I can send pics if you'd like?
Rub rail is generic.Check for length [single roll] and gunwale dimensions. Note lower lip on molding.How does it compare with existing rub rail.
Yes pls send pic
CAN YOU INSERT ANCHOR LINE INSTEAD OF RAIL INSERT ?
My original rub rail had anchor line in the insert. When I put the TACO rub rail on I played around with anchor line but in the end used the black plastic insert for two reasons. One, the rope gets dirty over time and will need to be replaced especially if you are hauling a lot of "stuff" over the gunwale. Two, the insert is quite narrow compared with the rub rail itself. A solid black rub rail looked better than the narrow white line of the anchor line.My original rub rail did use a larger diameter rope insert so it looked better balanced.End comment. I suspect that you can use anchor line but it may not look very good. Could always try using a short length and see what you think.Richard
Hi Bernie S......Yes u can but u must have a bit bigger size rope as ur insert and very dense or u can buy a rope insert
My boat is 32ft. Is the 70ft length enough. And is it 70ft x2 ins ?. Just want to make sure before I purchase.
Make sure you include the transom width if it is covered with the rubrail. Otherwise you will be short a few feet. Having an extra set of arms like a friend to pull the new rub rail tight helps. Also two drill motors. One with a drill bit. The other with a phillips bit to drive the screw. Hope this helps. Jack
Thanks Jon. First time doing this
Our boat is only 27 ft. So we had extra lentth. I found it no prblem to instal.
Rub Rail Replacement
I had to muster courage to buy this replacement. It was expensive and the descriptions and pictures were marginal at best. My wife and I installed the new rail in an afternoon and it worked like a charm. Looks as good as the original and was easy to install.
