Hi all,

About a year ago I posted a question about aluminum rub rail replacement. I tried to get some from the Uniflight guy in Seatle w/o success. I vaguely recall one of you folks had some damaged rub rail but the marina fixed it so you did not have to buy any. Any how anyone give me another lead?

Gary - I was the one whose yard damaged the rail.  It was repaired to an acceptable level, but I'm still not happy about it.  As far as finding replacement, GOOD LUCK.

I called everywhere I could and placed messages on a few forums.  All their leads were for naught.  This rail has obviously been discontinued long ago.  A poor design with stainless screws on aluminum.  The dissimilar metals corrode and do not look very nice.  One of our members went to the trouble of removing and having the rail powder coated!   He also said;  "Never again!"  Although many marine products are powder-coated aluminum, I have never seen a powder-coated aluminum part in the open environment hold up.  The powder coating usually ends up bubbling up and peeling off.  One would be much better off to prep the aluminum properly and paint with Awlgrip or Emron.

Keep us posted on what you find.
