    Question Looking for specific Rub Rail!

    Hello all, I am looking for aluminum rub rail that is not made by Taco any longer. Inside measurements of 1" X " angle. I am attaching a picture. Really hate to change everything out just because I need a couple short pieces. I need 2 x 24" pieces but will buy what I can find. I am attaching a picture as well.
    Thanks for the help!

    Rocky,
    Welcome to the WBF!
    That looks like a proprietary piece for a specific boat.
    If TACO does not make it anymore, then the best bet, aside from changing it all out, will probably be to find a junk boat and cannibalize it.
    Best I can do. Good luck.

    Thanks, I am hoping someone may "find" a chunk in their garage or an old boat shop with a stash !!

    Well, if it is a production boat, the name or model of the boat might help!
    Even some pictures might spur a little interest.

    Aluminum can be worked with woodworking hand tools. So.. you know the answer. if you want it seamless and assuming your welding skills are at least equal to my own; take it to a welder that knows how to weld alum. some filing and sanding done. if it was anodized.. that could be the stop on this idea. guess you could paint it with alum paint of some type.

    Rocky, try a Google search for 'aluminum counter edge trim' - there are a couple which look similar to what you have (on Amazon) [ No affiliation]

    yeah... "how to use the internet 101" should be my signature.
