1981 Hunter 25

As I stated before, our 1981 H25 that has been neglected for some time and that, unfortunately, includes the wood on the exterior. The handrail/hatch guides are pretty much goners with some sever checking of the wood so they will need to be replaced.

I know I can get new rails and the wood to create the base for the rail/hatch guide easy enough from Buck Woodcraft, but I can also make them myself using white oak or some other wood that can take the outdoors provided I keep up on the maintenance.

Has anyone else done this and, if so, what wood and finish did you use? What would you change looking back?

Re: 1981 Hunter 25

You can buy handrails for your boat, check Hunter owners.com. Maybe cheaper to buy vs make.
