Wanted - Rub Rail and Cap

The rub rail on my 1972 42 classic needs a lot of the wood rub rail replaced and a smaller portion of the bronze cap. Hoping I can find some instead of trying to make it.

Re: for the woodies: paying seams

Slick Seam is the ticket, I don'y think paint will stick to it so don't get too sloppy

Re: 50 amp adapter

Go to your big box hardware store and pick up the plugs and make your own.

Re: Generator Sound Shield for sale

I'm just curious as to why you have this for sale? Old generator pulled and the shroud got left behind? Built a new one?

Black Sealer

In disassembling multiple places on my 1972 42 classic I am finding the use of some type of black sealer. Some places have brown which I understand is Dolfinite. The Dolfinite is still soft in some places but hard in others. I picked up Dolfinite and have used it in a few places like bedding the qua...

Re: Aft Hatch Leaks

Pulled the frame off last weekend and cut out the rotten wood. Next step would be penetrating epoxy which needs a warm day so the rebuild portion may not happen until spring. I will get all the new repair components cut up and ready.

Re: Aft Hatch Leaks

This is one of my winter projects. All my efforts to seal this up did not work. So far I have pulled the trim boards and headliner to expose the area. It appears the water is coming in on the screws holding the slides to the cabin top. My next step is to pull the whole assembly which is screwed down...

My PO installed two rings, one at the base of the flybridge railing right in front of the mast and the other in the center of the flybridge helm near the top. I attached a double pulley to t...
