Hi all.

I need to replace a small piece of missing black rubbing strake on the rear end of our winder hull (composite boat). only a small bit missing (20cm) but where to buy it from and how to fix in place is what i need to know?
Any advice most welcome.
Cheers,

Andy FB14452

Andy,

Are we talking the trim piece across the top of trhe transome or gunwhale rubbing-strake?

I guess it'll be a 'make-to-order' piece. 

My reccommendaation would be either Winders or Andy Willcocks - neither are what you'd call in the neighbourhood. Have you asked in the chandlery at Datchet if they know any decent repairers?

Rgds,

Nick.

PS. Stop hitting stuff with it - its not a battering ram!

Thanks for that Nick.
We do have a good local repairman in Datchet but i was just being tight and trying to avoid a bill.
The rubbing strake is on the underside of the hull, there are 2 of them, screwed into the hull at (intervals of approx 30cm) and the rubber strake runs from approx level with the start of the centreboard gasket through to the stern, lining the flat chine of the underside of the hull. (dyagetme?)
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Andy

Is it a black plastic strip, about 3/8" wide, slightly rounded? If so, could you let me know if and where you find some. Both mine need replacing. Mine appear to be epoxied on and then screwed.

Hi Andrew,
Yes exactly as described. i examined a newer all white winder while at Shoreham last week and it would seem the newer boats now have a moulded strake in place of the epoxied and screwed in rubber infill that my boat (and yours too) has. 
I will let you know if i find some, if you could do the same it would be appreciated.
Cheers,
Andy
