Re: Dyer Dinghy rub rail replacement

I'm not totally sure but I think they just come with the white oak rub rails. Although the foam and canvas would be nice but the stuff is so damn pricey.

No, but it would have been nice. I attempted to put that stuff on mine.. as an after thought. It was a bit messy to do. Not sure what the answer is. No easy answers without drilling a million holes in a nice boat. how about just using the dyer to attach some inflatable tubes too and have a RIB! ahha

Horrible idea. This will fail early.

Dyer used rivets for good reason. But the sex bolts could work, too.

Re: Dyer Dinghy rub rail replacement

I have a 9' dhow and replaced the rubrail years ago with teak. I laminated the whole thing on the boat with clamps, then riveted it after. Worked great and now I do not have to worry about the oak checking or turning black. Love sailing that boat on her ear.

Re: Dyer Dinghy rub rail replacement

Thanks rock, yea teak would be nice but pretty pricey as I just plan on using it for the dinghy. I've searched around and found actual white oak to use. Which isn't supposed to turn black like red and burl oak ect. Where did you get the rivets from?
