Rub Rail Replacement Selection Guide - page Color

>
>
Ensure the length of the
Rub Rail is sufficient for
your boat. It is always
best to buy an extra
10' for trial and error.
>
>
Make sure to purchase
all the materials needed
(Rub Rail, insert,
fasteners, end caps,
splice caps, etc…) to
complete the job.
>
>
Carefully read all the
instructions before
beginning and/or watch
the Taco Marine Rub Rail
Installation Video which
you can view online at
TacoMarine.com.

You can replace your
rub rail with a factory
replacement style or
a completely different
look. Regardless of
the material originally
installed by the builder
of your boat, feel free to
choose the material and
style you desire.

It is easier to install if you
remember to choose a rub
rail that is at least the same
height as the original.

Flexible vinyl rub rail is
the easiest to bend and
provides a cushioning
effect when in use
against normal bumps
from pilings and docks.

Rigid vinyl, as well as
aluminum rub rail with
flexible vinyl insert,
performs well, lasts long
and is easy to install in
straight runs.

Rigid vinyl rub rail
with stainless steel
overlap provides the
best protection and the
longest useful life.
