I am in the process of stripping all hardware off the deck of my 25 Irwin. It leaks at the deck and hull joint so I pulled off some of the teak toe rail. Unfortunately there will be no re using the toe rail, it is rotted.

I have been searching for a fix using: Teak, Aluminum, Plasteak, ect... I found this article:

Good Old Boat - A new toerail for an old warhorse article

Has anyone been able to successfully duplicate this? Does it look good, and is it functional?

Thanks guys lots of good advice. I was not aware of the teak rotting until I removed the toe rail. Moisture got in underneath it and is is really soft. Otherwise I thought I would be putting the same toe rail back on.

I might have a lead on some aluminum toe rail that came off of a 25 ft sail boat. I'll let you know what I find.

I do agree on that article. If only they posted pictures of the end result.
