Bass tracker rub rail

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone know where I can get a rubrail insert for an 89 bass tracker? Tracker no longer caries the part, and Taco doesn't make an insert in the right size.

My rub rail was completely shredded and falling appart so I ripped it out. If I can't find a fitting rubber insert, I was think of taping off the rub rail and filling it with a thick truck bed liner or something simular.

Thoughts??

I have a 1988 Bass Tracker 1800FS... and I dont know if you can just get only the insert... you could try West Marine... I am in middle of renovating the boat... and found a suitable rubrail kit at West Marine...

If you have the same boat... and want to know more about what aftermarket stuff is out there... email me and I'll point you into the right directions as much as I can...

Ok I will send you an email. On my boat the rub rail track is built into the 3" wide gunal... its one peice. The insert is just a shaped rubber strip -- you think someone out there would make a replacement.

I think your boat is fiberglass and mine is aluminum if I'm not mistaken...

No you arent mistaken... mine is fiberglass...

Yeah I know what you mean... when something has two pieces to it and one is still good while other isnt... and nobody makes the piece that went bad...

Maybe it'd help whole lot if you got some pics up...

I got your email... I'll reply to it later tonite... as I have quite a few things I need to do... errand run... and hopefully that the info in my email will help you more...

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!

    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
