I need to replace my rub rails on a 40ft timber cruiser
Hi, I have a old timber cruiser built in about 1876.
She is in quite good condition but the rub rails are destroyed in some areas.
I have seen some comments about replacing them with spotted gum but haven't found a lot of info
- Do I used green wood, kiln dried or what, and what is involved in steaming?
- Does the whole rail need to be replaced or can I join sections?
the rails are about a rounded 4x2" on the aft and probably about 3x1.5" shaped on the bow.
