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?

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