Got My Rub Rails on...Finally

Rub Rails were pretty well shot when I got the boat...I don't think they were "original", but have been on the boat for some time...



I made up new ones from Cumaru wood...a South American hardwood similar to Ipe and colored like Teak...Picked it up in a couple of 5/4"x6" ($60) deck boards and a little work with the table saw and router and I had the pieces ready to go...



Couple coats of Cetol Natural brought them to color...



And now that Deck is painted I installed with SS screws and a dab of sealant each...Used a double Rope, whipped on ends and sewn together, attached with 5200 to make the "corners" and Bow cap...





Whole Project, Grab Rails and Rub Rails under $100..

Re: Got My Rub Rails on...Finally

Looks very nice Squidd. Nice wood working.
I also like the rope 'bumper' embedded with 5200 on the bow. Same on the stern?
Not sure I would use 5200 though. It looks nice though.

Same on stern "corners"... I didn't want them falling off, hanging loose, or getting ripped off if I do "bump" them...and they are on nice outside corners if I ever do want to/or need to "grind" them off...
