rub rail

Has anyone had any experience replacing the rub rail on a cal 34, or any cal, with something other than the factory rubber one? How expensive would it be to just finish the hull and deck joint?

Replacing Cal rub rail

I have replaced the rub rail on my Cal 30. Try to do it on a warm day -- the rubber is much more flexible. I got it from D&R Marine. It took about 3 hours.

A rub rail is there to take the beating instead of your hull and/or deck.
Be best to keep one. I have seen long strips of oak used to be more pleasing to the eye yet durable.

I just ordered a new rub rail for my 1978 Cal 34 from Seals Spars and Rigging.
Was $415, incl shipping from California to Oregon. He knows the topic.

New rub rail

Howzit Cal sailors,
Just finished installing new rub rail on Cal27. Now just need to pull the tape on the waterline and add bootstripe,and we'll be done . Steve at Seals and Spars knows his business and helped out with the install instructions over the phone. Shipping to Hawaii was steep($90.00!), but we needed to change it out. Thanks to whoever(Salty Bob) mentioned Steve and his business. I second the recommendation. Good sailing.
Aloha ka'kou,
Leonard

The pictures are nice but how is the rubrail attached? Is it "snapon" or Steve Seal's replica of Cal's rigid vinyl exrusion typically screwed to the hull/deck joint?

Screwed...

Hey Scirocco,
Yes, they are screwed into the flange (hull/deck) joint. Steve will tell you how to do it. I recommend usung 1 " screws instead of 3/4, and washers. We put ours into the top, giving it the more heavy duty look. Maybe you can see it in this pic. Good luck.
