    Showing off the new rub rail on my 1984 Bertram 54. I didn't do the work myself but it sure feels great!

    OK - here are the two photos sized properly ... I was unable to edit the previous so that can be deleted.

    Yes ... it's the High Tide Marine/Heavens Bay Marine product ... approx $4500 parts. Problem is, I went cheap on the stainless cap (big mistake).

    After a while with the boat, it felt like everybody was trying to upsell at every turn. So, when they described the stainless cap "and the availability of a higher quality"...., I just said ... no stick with the standard.

    So ... now I'll get to replace the cap with the high quality one in a couple of years. Parts for the rubrail with the high quality solid stainless cap (highly recommended) would be around $9k. Installation is quite a significant job as are so many jobs on a sizable boat.
