sawingknots wow,now i'm envious cold and all,the marinas in tenn. are almost as bad [price/service]as south coastal,no doubt the result of too many boats/too few marinas

Squidd Season is very short... Then I'm going to Lake superior which stays on the cold side year round...But that's OK it's a beautiful place...

Plan is to haul up in spring (after hull painting) and have mast stepped once by crane at marina...They have a decent depth landing for largish boats and rent dry space for leaving on the trailer during the week...transient slips (for the weekend) are cheap and if you call ahead they will launch your boat for you and have it tied to pier.... same with pull and park if your coming in late and have to run..

End of season drop the mast and bring 'er home...

sawingknots i love wood too,i ran/operated a sawmill for over thirty years,but its disheartening to spend a lot of time fabricating,installing and meticulessly finishing wood work on a boat only to watch it deteriate after only a short time.btw do will you be loading your py at a ramp?what are your plans about stepping/unstepping the mast?i lived in wis. many years ago,your boating season is quite short huh

Squidd I hear that... but I'm an old carpenter living in a log cabin..in the great northwoods....

I'm kinda partial to wood and wood working...

Besides, I can put mine on a trailer, haul it home and put it in the barn to work on it during the long cold winters...

sawingknots i'm not positive about the $200 but i'd rather not have anymore wood topside to keep refinishing than necessary,wood looks really good for one maybe two years,the handrail, tiller and hatch way frame is plenty,if my handrail wasn't in good shape i'd replace it with stainless

Ouch... For $200 I'll do it all in wood (Cumaru), do the hand rails on the deck and still have $125 in my pocket...

sawingknots exactly!the new rubrail base came in 20ft sections with predrilled holes,i just sealed up the origional screw holes and used a small drill to put in the new screws,warmed the new base slightly and used a heat gun on the corners,the insert came rolled up and was long enough to go all the way around with extra,one time it got slightly scratched on a concrete wall and i removed it with fine sandpaper,i've saw lots of boats with the same rubrail so i imagine it can be found pretty easily

Waltthesalt i've got the same job on a Cal 29. It doesn't appear all that difficult. Take off the old rub rail, involves some screws. Fill old screw holes. Put on some silicon sealant. Put on the rubrail. reinstall the screws. There are suppliers for flexible vinyl that fit specific boats. I think going annother route would be more work

My rub rail is wood, which has rotted out, and I'm replacing with wood...

I take it mine's not original...?
