Rub rail damage help needed

Good day to all,

The question is where can I get the rubber insert for the rub rail on my 1993 Snowgoose. I live in Shalimar FL and we had a tad of bad weather here a while back. It has kept me off line and away from my boat till two weeks ago. I believe they called it hurricane Ivan. The boat rode it out pretty well but the dock was destroyed. Got power two weeks ago but no water. Got cable internet service back yesterday but no TV. You figure that one out! I am told they will finish nailing the boards on the dock before the first of the year and water is a week off. That is only two weeks behind schedule as of Monday. But all in all I am one happy camper, I still have my boat which I share with my wife, two dogs and my sonís cat. Home sweet home! Any way after five foot of water above dock level left me with a rub mark on the aft port bottom paint and a five foot piece of the rub rail where the rubber took the hit and saved our side. TACO who makes a lot of rub rail products here in the states doesnít have any thing like what is on my English made boat. Any one got an address where I might be able to get a replacement?

Help !

Thanks

Gary

Glad to hear your boat made it through Ok. I was wondering how you guys did.

I've looked thorugh my Prout literature, but no luck yet with any supplier names on the rub rail. Perhaps one of our English members will have an idea.

Try these people, dont know about the Prout moulding, but they do the catalac one, and I think will do custom work as well

Thanks

Thanks for the thoughts. I would so like to find parts on this side of the pond but that doesn't always happen. I'll let you know what I find.
Again Thanks

Gary
