repairing teak rub rail
Looked at a few boats this weekend, one, an Iroquois catamaran, had massive teak rub rails / toe rails. On this particular boat, one was split at the stern, another split at the bow. Don't know how it got split, hull looked OK near the split parts so if it was a collision it didn't leave a mark on the fiberglass that I could see.
I was wondering, in repairing them, would the whole 30' length of teak need to be replaced, or can new pieces be spliced in ?
I expect that splicing in is probably the preferred much cheaper way, just don't know if the splice would be able to handle the stress of being curved around the hull.
