Wooden rail repair

5 posts in this topic

I just got an old 14 foot crestliner for free(great price) but it has wooden rails on it.....never seen that before. They are rotted out and i'd like to put new ones on it. Anyone ever done this before with any luck or heard of it being done?

What kind of wood and what style gunnal can you post a pic? Most times you'd need to steam the wood then apply.

Looks fairly easy,you could buy some 16 ft. oak 1x2s Install them one at a time to make the bends laminate them remove and shape.Expensive wood tho.If you had a finger joiner bit on a radial arm saw you could make your own 16 ft. 1xs
