Rub rail insert


Well-known member
Finally got weather warm enough to install the rub rail. Well most of it, I still have one inside corner at the starboard splash well, but the temp is going up tomorrow, so that should be it. Still very happy with the product and thrilled to have it installed.

My 15 year son and I installed the new rub rail insert this past Saturday. Soaking it in hot water in a cooler for 10 minutes and the use a wooded spatula made the installation go well. Installing on a warm summer day also helped. The rub rail insert is a great looking addition on our boat and is well worth the money! Here is a picture of the completed installation.
