I removed and replaced my rub rail last year and went with Taco marine products as well. I replaced BOTH the rub tail and the insert as well, so that is a consideration. Go on their website, or someone who sells their product, (Rex Marine, I believe) and try to match the shape/style of the insert (very important, boat model specific) and then request one or multiple samples of the style/color you want to make sure it will conform to your hull's curve lines. Won't cost you a thing and gives you piece of mind before you buy 50' of rail and insert and have it shipped in a big coil....

I replaced the rubber insert on our 87' Prostar last year. I found a local shop Eagle Mouldings.

They had the correct insert in stock! They just unrolled 50' plus a couple extra, and I was out the door!

Thanks for posting the link. Replacement for mine is coming close to the top of the to do list.

Your Welcome! It's only 2 blocks from my office. If you bring a small piece with you, they will make sure to match it exactly. They even gave me some helpful hints to get the new stuff inserted! (not an easy task)!

Let me know, when your ready, I will help you install it!

Much appreciated. I haven't looked yet, but do they sell the aluminum channel as well?

YEP! They sure do! I thought about changing mine on the 87' I saw an 83' Nautique with a rope inside the aluminum channel,(VERY CLASSIC OLD SCHOOL) a teal rope would look sweet with the teal stripes on my boat. I didn't want to spend the time drilling the entire channel out and redrilling and riveting the new channel on!

My channel has a chunk missing from a dock incident by the previous owner, and the insert has seen better days. I am planning a full replacement.

I have another couple of questions...
How hard is it to replace the carpet?
And when I put the new aluminum rub rail on, can I not just use the existing rivet holes and maybe use a larger rivet?
