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.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
