Any ideas on where to purchase a one piece white "L" molding rub rail? I found one place that carries them, but they wanted $185 + shipping. Seems expensive to me considering Twin Cities carries 3 piece rails for quite a bit less. Any leads would be appreciated. - k

Hi Kevin,
I'm sure one of tne experts will be along to confirm, but I think you can get that item at Hamilton Marine.

Kevin,
Have you had any luck with your rubrail? I know some people at Barbour Plastics, Whaler's supplier, and if that doesn't work, I also know people at Taco.

I think you are referring to the same rub rail that is on my Nauset and if so, I spoke with Fred at CMI, very nice gent and he has it in stock, follow this link to the recommended sources page JimH put together:

I appreciate the replies- after some phone calls I think I came up with a good deal with Hamilton Marine in Maine. I ordered the one piece rubrail which was on sale this week for $2.15 per foot, ordered extra, just in case and still was under $100 including shipping. Seems like a good deal to me! Thanks for the lead Sheila!

Contender- I talked with Fred at CMI, and he quoted $185 plus shipping! Very nice gentleman, and he may have quoted me the wrong rubrail price.

Seabob-I really appreciate the offer to connect with Barbour and Taco, may be dropping you a line in the future!

Thanks all!-k

My pleasure. Drop me a line whenever. BTW, if your rubrail comes in a coil, and you want to do it yourself, start in one corner of the stern, toss the coil in the boat, pull down the end, pin it at the stern corner, and work it around the whole boat. Keep pulling it down as you need it, and pin every 4 ft. or so. I've done 35 footers this way, albeit from a scaffold! Have fun!

You're welcome.

I believe it was Tom Clark who sent me that info. back when I first acquired my Menemsha...but I wouldn't swear to it.

I DO know that someone here told me...I didn't discover it myself.
