Rubber Rubbing strip

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

I have a 7m Fibreglass Catalina 7.  The wooden rubbing strip covering the join between the deck and the hull has rotted. I would love to replace it with a rubber profile rather than laminating some timber.

Does anyone know where I can get some of this from?

Cheers

Rick

Rubber doesn't survive that well. Why not brass?

Hi Crazyhorse,

Thanks but it requires about 50mm of cover and needs to cover the join that protrudes 20mm laterally and 10mm vertically. I still have the brass strip that covered the timber but was hoping for something simpler.

Cheers

Rick

There are different variations of rubber so vulcanised stuff probably would be OK. Tugs and wharves use old car tyres and they seem to last for ever. Just be mindful of rafting up to others lovely shinny topsides!
