RE: [omc-boats] rub rail

I have a 1965 Evinrude Sweet 16. The insert color on the rubrail was blue
and my boat's repainted colors are white hull with black accents. I
therefore wanted a black insert rubrail.


While I was searching for a black insert color, I found at BoatUS the insert
rubrail for the Tyco rubrail system. I found that with a large flat blade
screw driver I was able to mate into my existing rubrail.


It looks great. The insert color does not fit as an insert but as a "wedge
in" type. I not sure I am properly describing the process/look. The result
is the vinyl rubrail projects out further than the metal rubrail.


If you hit a piling or dock hard, the wedged in vinyl will pop out.
However, it will go back in some what easily.


I hope this tid bit of info has been helpful as an alternative choice.


Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I have been looking off and on for aluminum extrusion rub rail and white
vinyl insert for my 69 rogue for years now with no success. I would like to
know the original manufacturer who has the dies to extrude these parts. I
would be interested in helping with the expenses to retool and manufacture.
First order is to determine what, if any, commonality exists for these
parts. I would be willing to accept a close enough fit and an alternate
color vinyl as almost anything now would be an improvement. There is nothing
on ebay. Anybody know the original manufacturer? How were the
curves made? Who would know? Tom K.
