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...

    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.  
    • Never saw a water driven pump. The ones I use and know if are the battery backup kind. They are sold at all if the big box stores and are around $300 I believe. They run off of an automotive type battery that has a trickle charger attached to it to maintain the charge. You have as much backup power as your battery has capacity and then that pump is dead as well so it's a short term solution.having a generator is very helpful as part of the backup plan.
    • I missed one last night.   Shot a 3D archery shoot yesterday and did really well.  From there straight to my blind for an evening hunt.  Big tom came in to 32 yards. I ranged him, dialed in my sight and slid one just passed him. That's as far as I've ever shot with my bow but was feeling pretty confident after shooting all day. Oh well.   Sitting in another spot right now and as of 6:30 have not yet heard a peep.  Can't sit long today, dang work always getting in the way of my fun.
    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
