    A custom stainless rubrail is going to cost more than your boat, whats wrong with the origional? Look up rub rails on Jamestown Distributors.

    Taco metals is major rub rail provider to the American Marine industry.

    pre drilled SS rail is expensive.

    I have been on taco metal website already. The original rubrail is in great shape but is the black rubber type. I like the look of the stainless and it wasnt offered on my boat when i ordered it in '04. There is a curve in the aft section on both sides that may not be able to be done. Its beyond my fab skills at this time.
