Toerail Repair

I have a 1976 Lancer 28. Recently, as a result of some strong winds in the marina, a small section of the aluminum toerail on the starboard side was damaged. Actually, a section about a foot long was ripped from the deck and twisted like a piece of licorice. Fortunately, the rest of the toerail is ok. Given the age of the boat, I don't want to replace the whole toerail, if I can help it. I'm thinking of just cutting the damaged portion off and replacing it with another piece. Am I asking for leakage/rotting problems? What is the best way to seal up the gap between the old and new pieces? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

It depends on your toe rail manufacturer, if it is still made. Antal has a joiner for their system if you are lucky one of theirs may fit, look on page 153 of the attached catalog . Holt makes toe rail as does taco not sure if they have a joiner. If you bed the replacement rail properly you should not have a problem with leakage. Good luck. Jack
