I have a 1987 38. I am looking for new rub rail. Currently it has a metal rail.
Any thoughts on where to purchase rub rail for a 38.

Paul,

I've gone through the exercise on a 4788. Here's the link:

http://p076.ezboard.com/4788-Rubrail-replacement-with-Pics/fbocwebfrm26.showMessage?topicID=778.topic

Mine was done with later model rubrail supplied by Olympic Boat Centers

Rubrail is also made by Taco Marine:

Morse industries also make rubrail but won't sell direct.

I gave up on them in the end, after waiting for replies to about 6 emails...IMHO pretty useless Customer Service.

Hope this helps.

I used the Taco rail. It is black plastic with a stainless insert. Rubrail # V21-9659BK and insert # S11-4510P1. Photo at http://mywebpages.comcast.net/mlaird/images/Anchors%20004.jpg

Mike,

That's an interesting dual anchor set up. Tell me more about it and do you have any more photos.

I did the same taco as Mike, works well, can whack it and no damage. Used a black more supple with a black insert on the swimstep and did the anchor platform with the leftover.

Ken. the anchor system works great. The delta has an all chain rode while the danforth has the normal chain/line rode. I use the danforth as a lunch hook and for bottom fishing in the Gulf. It stows in the on-deck anchor locker. The Muir windlass had both a gypsy and a capstan so pulling either one is easy. There ar a couple of more pics at http://mywebpages.comcast.net/mlaird/

Thanks Mike,

Good idea. I've been thinking about doing something similar to my boat to hold a fishing anchor.
