Purchasing a 98 18 Dauntless with a rub rail that looks like it was left out in the sun too long. It isn't too bad but I would like it to look as nice as the rest of the boat. Wondering what I can do to fix it. Does anyone know what is involved in replacing the rail? If I were to do this would I be opening a bad can of worms? Any thoughts on reconditioning the existing rub rail? Any feedback would be great.

13 dauntless- restoring it isn't much of an option- replacing it would be a good 8 hr job. I'm currently completely restoring my 21' outrage and a company called taco makes rubrail kits that are'nt too for your boat should be about $125 or so and come complete with directions.

The 18DA rub rail kit, part #500-05074, from Whaler is going to be $200.00+.
Before you go to the expense of a new rub rail try Meguiars #4416 color restorer and then a coat of your favorite wax or vinyl protector. I have seen it do wonders to ugly rub rail.
