Rub rail repair

I saw a Pearson 30 a few days ago with some rail damage.

I noticed that the rail was covered with a piece of plastic that that was on the outside covering the hull deck joint.
There was another horizontal piece of plastic that snapped into vertical piece to hide the hull deck bolts.

Wood, fiberglass and metal can all be fabricated if necessary but how do you deal with a repair when the vendor used odd custom plastic parts?

With great difficulty.. but you'll often find such "custom parts" are available from either the vendor or someone like West Marine if you know what you are looking for.

The alternative is fibreglass tape and copious amounts of 3200.. for the next guy to worry about.

just replace the rubrail on the entire boat,the plasic base comes in 20 ft sections and can be secured by pop rivits or stainless screws,the insert also comes in 20 ft sections and is easily inserted in into the base this rub rail comes in many different colors depending on the buyers preference,a heat gun will warm the rail so its easily manipulated

Re: Rub rail repair hull deck joint cover

Power-Rated Raceway, 400, 800, 2300 | by Legrand

This is the link to a wire mold product that is pretty close to the one on my Pearson 31-2 I have to cut down one side of the channel and glue on the bottom part to the side to make it taller. I am not explaining it well but this molding is the closest thing I have found to replace the white plastic strip under the rub rail. A little fabrication, a little 5200 to keep the parts glued to each other and it should work well. I will try to get some photos as I get it going. Can be found at Home Depot, 5' for about 8 dollars.
