We will also feature easy-to-install TACO Marine® Rub Rail kits. While rub rail is primarily designed to protect a boat, it is also a great way to upgrade its value and appearance with a bright new look and accent.

We offer a full product line of rub rail kits for all sizes of boats, in a convenient and easy carry box that’s also easy to ship. Each kit includes all items needed for full replacement of rub rail, including stainless steel fasteners, end caps and, in some profiles, the insert.

If you don’t find a genuine Taco Marine Rub Rail kit in your stocking, it may be because Santa put it under the tree or used it on his sleigh – to protect chimneys of course. Because Taco Marine is the largest producer of rub rail for boat builders, Santa recommends that you click here for a Free Rub Rail Replacement Guide. It helps you find  the original installed on your boat, what to buy and you can select from many types, styles and colors of rub rail. A Taco Marine Rub Rail Kit may not be a stocking stuffer, but it makes an easy gift to put under the tree.
