Made some stainless rub rail end caps today... the old ones were looking tired. I still need to polish them.

thanks, here is a test fit... need to remove the old sealant and reseal it. Decided not to fully polish and went with a fine brushed look.

here they are installed... I'm no pro so they don't look as good as they could.

Please PM me... I wasn't planing on making more but if your interested send me a message. Stainless steel isn't an easy metal to work with and these may look easy to make and in theory they are but take time to get right.

Ok I have thought about it more and I think I should just make 10 or 20 sets. I'm thinking $75 a set. They will be an exact match, even better then the ones I made.

I'm pretty sure all the older Grady's have the same rub rail. I know the newer ones with the stainless rails there a little bit different, and already have a stainless end cap.

The plastic ones are $30 a set I think.


Reactions....?

yes 316 SS...

I need to hear from you all, if 5 or more want them I will make them. also I think the bigger boats have larger rub rails... I'm not 100'% but if that's the case then I would need someones end caps to make duplicates.

I also need a set for my '99 Marlin. My end caps are almost completely disintegrated. Anyone have any updates on this?
