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.
