We’ve got a new Rub Rail replacement video with Captain Mark Henderson from the Liquid Fire Fishing Team and Captain Danny Avila of Hammertime Sportfishing.
In this video, Henderson, our Strategic Product Category Manager, and Avila, our Account Services Representative, remove old, damaged Rub Rail from a 36-year-old Classic Mako 228 and replace it with new Vinyl Rub Rail from one of our TACO Marine Rub Rail Kits.

Additionally, Henderson discusses various quick and easy tricks to avoid Rub Rail heartache, including how to prevent the Insert from shrinking, how to make the Rub Rail more pliable and how to find the center point.
Each kit includes a continuous coil of Rub Rail for a one-piece installation without a seam, a continuous coil Insert, end caps (when applicable), screws and an installation guide. You can find our Vinyl Rub Rail Kits at your favorite marine retailer and the Rub Rail rebate online at tacomarine.com.
