Elmo,

Where did you get your HD rubrails? I may be replacing mine regular duty rails, and have heard they are expensive.

Thanks,
Tom

You can purchase HD rubrail direct from Barbour Plastics. Call and get the catalog, pick out 3 or 4 styles that you like and give them a call. Ask for a drop in the desired styles. We have always had good luck finding an end-of-run drop to meet our needs. Almost forgot, you won't believe how much money you will save by buying a drop. Their prices are great.

What's a drop?

My Whaler price list is from 2000 and at that time you could expect to pay around $520.00 for the HD rub rail kit from Whaler, depending on how greedy your Whaler dealer is.
Barbour plastics should beat that.

Tom,
A drop is the end piece from the run. If they get an order for 5,000 feet of a certain style, there is usually some extra - a drop. I think we paid about $230.00(with shipping) the last time for 80' of rubrail and 100' of insert.
