Replace bow rail

Can anyone chime in on this? Trying to raft up at the lake yesterday and some arsehole in a 35 ft comes by and creates waves that you couldnt imagine. We were fine tuning the tie up and the waves hit. Buddies boat came down on bow rail bent it up and pulled two of the arms right out of the fibergalss. Luckily that was the only damage. Fiberglass is easy to repair, but I dont know where to find a new rail for a 30 ft Oday. Doesnt need to be the same, just something sturdy. Lifeline also snapped, so I need to replace those as well (they were old anyway).

Re: Replace bow rail

Give D & R Marine a call. They specialize in O'Days, they should be able to find you something or point you in the right direction.

Good luck.

Re: Replace bow rail

Make sure whatever you get has a mounting point for these puppies

That should prevent further damage.
Did you get the name/hailing port of the passing vessel?

Re: Replace bow rail

Track down a marine consignment shop in your area - they usually have some, sometimes they have a lot of them. Good Old Boat's website has a list of them.

Re: Replace bow rail

If you can track down the offender, they should be able to be held liable for the damage they've done.. esp with witnesses.

There should be custom SS fabricators about who could make one for you, most of this work is generally done that way....

Re: Replace bow rail

courtesy of NavRules Frequently Asked Questions;

10. What are the regulations concerning wake effects, wake damage, and responsibility? Regarding one's wake, vessels over 1600 Gross Tons are specifically required by Title 33 CFR 164.11 to set the vessel's speed with consideration for...the damage that might be caused by the vessel's wake. Further, there may be State or local laws which specifically address "wake" for the waters in question.

While vessels under 1600 GT are not specifically required to manage their speed in regards to wake, they are still required to operate in a prudent matter which does not endanger life, limb, or property (46 USC 2302). Nor do the Navigation Rules exonerate any vessel from the consequences of neglect (Rule 2), which, among other things, could be unsafe speeds (Rule 6), improper lookout (Rule 5), or completely ignoring your responsibilities as prescribed by the Navigation Rules.

As to whether or not a particular vessel is responsible for the damage it creates is a question of law and fact that is best left to the Courts. For more information, contact your local Marine Patrol or State Boating Law Administrator.

Which then points here:- National Association of State Boating Law Administrators
