    Default Rubrail for expedition Wherry.

    Iíve been trying for about a month to find a suitable rubrail for my latest build. Finally found something I liked, but they only have 20í of it in stock and donít know when/if they will get any more.

    Anybody know of another source for this?

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    Admittedly wood is pretty. On a boat that spends 4 months on the water and 8 months in storage waiting for a thaw out it’s fine.
    Around here it’s a royal PITA.
    It gets rough at our dock as well, so protection is what’s needed. Aesthetics are a consideration, but function is primary.

    Substance over style? So sad.....

    My boat lives in the water too, I get it. A bunch of her brightwork just got sanded and painted. The well protected cockpit stayed bright but just about everything else is now painted.

    Pretty sure that is a Taco product. They don’t show it with a rope insert that I found in a quick look. Go to:

    www.tacomarine.com and click on Products, then Rail then Flexible vinyl

    Widely distributed, and when you get the Taco part number you can widen your search
