Cal rubrail replacement

I've found two sources for Cal 29 rubrails. Seals' Spars and Rigging, and D & R Marnie. D&R is considerably less expensive. Has anyone had any experience it? It looks like other than length the rubrail mateial is the same for Cal 24-33s.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

I don't know what a 29 rubrail looks like, but I replaced my 28-2 rubrail several years ago. It wasn't as difficult as I thought. Removed the teak toe rail and the stern pulpit (and the life-line stanchions for good measure). I put a large tub of water on the dock and used a small charcoal grill to heat it. Heating the coil of rubrail (at least for the 28-2) made it much more flexible and easy to install. I used some sort of Sika-Flex (sorry I don't remember which) to bed it and bedded the toe rail screws separately. So far, it's the one place I know water's not coming in.

Good luck

angus

I suggest you contact D&R and have them send you a foot of the material. When we replaced the rub-rail on our former Cal 2-29, we used Seal's Spars material and it went very well. There is a methodology to the process. Let us know whether you have removed the old rub-rail already.
