Tessilmare Boat Rub Rail
We have all experienced it. A slow and perfectly timed approach to a dock. Suddenly things go a little wrong and BUMP, we hit the dock, piling or pier. Even with the proper fendering or the eager help of the crew trying to fend off it is inevitable that the rub rail will come in use.
A rub rail for boats has one main purpose, to sacrificially protect the vessel from damage and often serving a double function such as camouflaging a deck to hull joint. Rub rails come in many forms, shapes, and sizes with the most common being a base with either a synthetic or metal protector.
Boat rub rail replacements can become a trying endeavor, especially when attempting to match an existing boat rub rail due to all the different profiles manufactured over time, and with many legacy rub rail profiles not being available.
One solution to consider is to replace it with a new boat rub rail kit
. Depending on the vessel, rub rail replacement can be a straightforward undertaking and with the options offered from rub rail manufacturers such as Tessilmare®, the rub rail replacement is easily accomplished by a nonprofessional.

Tessilmare Radial Boat Rub Rail
Radial Boat Rub Rails
are perfect for every boat, yacht, or marine situation. Radial Boat Rub Rails are designed to help people save time and money with a PATENTED, simple product that can be installed cold in just a few steps (other rub rail requires heating). No special tools are required since the track bends in all boat directions for quick installation. Tessilmare Radial Rub rail is the number one choice for all marine installations.

Tessilmare® rub rails are available in various profiles and flexibility with a design feature of either the boat rub rail insert type, or the rub rail cap type of which both conceal the fasteners providing a super clean look. The rub rail insert type such as the Taco® rub rail
can use different types of material for the insert thereby adding additional cosmetic choices.
Boat Rub Rail End Caps & Joints
The start and end of a rub rail often requires some type of end cap.
Most all rub rail kits include rub rail caps that match the profile of the rub rail. Replacement rub rail end caps are also available separately and, in stainless steel or nylon. For a rub rail made up of multiple sections, a decorative joint
are available and placed over the connection concealing the joint. This option might not be available for all types of rub rails but could be worth consideration for a rub rail replacement project.
Replacement Boat Rub Rail
Repairing a boat rub rail could be a matter of simply replacing the insert or the rub rail cap and not the base depending on the style of rub rail. This repair can also be accomplished in short sections eliminating the need to replache entire insert. This option will of course show the visible joints in the insert or cape t. An example of a rub rail that is easily to repair and is sold by the foot is the BINO 40 Rub Rail
, manufactured by Tessilmare® .
Therefore, if a boat rub rail
is the task at hand consider a heavy-duty marine rub rail from Tessilmare®.
