Rubrail for my Morgan 28 OI

I''m in the process of replacing the original rubrail on my Morgan 28 Out Island, a 1976 version.

I''ve only been able to find one source for the rubrail, and have been quoted a price of $14 per foot, and I''ll need somewhere around 70 feet to redo the entire boat....OUCH!

Two questions: Does anyone know and alternative source for such rubrail, which admittedly is rather unusually shaped, AND

Does anyone have any tips to ensure the project''s success?

Rubrail for my Morgan 28 OI

I have attached the e-mail address and Web page address of the owner of a 33 OI who has tackled the project of replacing the rubrail, and from my conversations with him it seams to have been quite successful.

I would be interested in how you end up doing the job, as I will be attempting it next winter.

Best of luck

Thomas S. : I''m not sure exactly what you did, nor if it was on a Morgan 28 IO. The rubrail on my boat serves as a "jacket" of sorts over the seam where the top deck joins the hull.

Do you also have a Morgan 28 IO?

If so, what''s your telephone number, or email address? I''d like to discuss the project in more detail with you.

Thanks.
