1996 Beneteau Toe Railing replacement doesn't exist

Help fellow boat owner,

I have been to the local Beneteau dealer, web searching, Beneteau USA parts online, rig rite, and no one has the old style 6 inch on center drilled mounting holes, aluminum toe railing that measures 3 inches tall viewed from the side. I can't be the only one who has damaged toe railing that needs to be replaced. Need original parts as the chocks and life lines all mount on the railing.

See if you can find a Beneteau group online, maybe they could help. Or, continue your search, but make personal contact and keep asking for referrals where someone in the trade might know could help. Ask at the places that advertise in replacement toerails for older boats. I sympathize with your desire to keep the taller ones, it's easier to brace against. Or, replace both toerails, and order the mods you need. Or, have just one custom made. I sympathize with your desire to keep the yacht looking shipshape, but maybe you could learn to live with it if it isn't all torn up.

Good luck finding a solution that will work for you.

Ann

Did you call Beneteau USA and talk to Ward Richardson?
