    Trophy 2860 Rub Rail - Line-gctid396481

    I have purchased a 1985 2860 and I LOVE IT. I need to replace the line in the rub rail as its old and some what rotted. What type of line is it and where would I find it???

    Thanks

    Black rubber air hose looks real good.

      When you pull the rub rail tighten all the exposed hull screws amd seal things at the junction of hull/cap. Avoid cheap line (don't ask).

          I used double braided nylon with a blue and red tick in it. Came out real nice compared to the junk that was in there. 3/4" as I recall, but would have to check that.

            I recall 3/4 inch diameter line when I pulled the rotted cotton crap off my 2160.

            My choice of replacement line sucked, the poly rope used for decorative landscaping (looks like the original cotton crap but hey its synthetic right?). Three seasons later it is now sun damaged and fraying where it is coming apart. I will have to do the job again soon and I will use something similar to Orca's recommendation.

            Under the rub rail you will find a bunch of screws which I'm pretty sure are some of the fasteners holding the cap to the hull. I was surprised at the loosness of the screws and made sure to tighten 'em and seal 'em. Also removing the rubrail will most likely result in patches of rotted rope stuck to the metal underneath due to original glue. Figure in some extra scraping time.

              Sorry, I lied! Mine is a twisted nylon 3 strand. Has really held up well and is nice and soft. The red tick has faded out, but the blue tick is still there.
