Re: Cal 2-27 Inquiry
The design purpose of the rub rail was to conceal the deck/hull flange by being screwed into the "T" shaped flange joint formed by the deck meeting the hull. I have accordingly attached a picture of the top view of the section that I'm searching for. The black vinyl strip shown in the "damage" picture is used to cover the attaching screws and washers and is shown as an insert in the "Rub rail Section" attached (51.5kb). Overall dimensions are provided below.
The rub rail section is about 1/8" thick by 1 3/8" wide by 1 1/2" high and 3/4" deep to cover the flange. It also has a slot on its face which is apparently used to hold a 7/8" vinyl strip whose purpose is to cover the screw heads.
