Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rub Rail

Duane, the later model SM 53' all had the hard thermoplastic 'insert' that replaced the previous soft synthetic rubber type which works well but is prone to staining irreversibly. The hard insert is extremely difficult to replace. Let me emphasize extremely again! The synthetic rubber is much more simple to install and is, in fact, almost easy. You need to snatch up that used 'soft' rub rail insert. How much fiberglass damage did you sustain? I have supervised the repair of the fiberglass box section that supports the 'rub rail' several times and would be pleased to speak to whomever you select to repair it to share the methods we found to be the best way to proceed.

Sorry to read about your misfortune Duane,

I can’t answer your question, but wanted to point out that on the Amel Yacht Owner group on Facebook, Olaf Bauer is selling an original Amel Ru rail for SM2K or Santorin 2 x 16 meter. Amel sells for 852 euro, he sells for 550 euro…

I would jump on the opportunity…

The rub rail suffered damage due to being struck by
another boat while at anchor.  I've read about how this
is a rubber strip applied to the hull.  On my boat (2005
Amel Super Maramu) it appears to be fiberglass.  Am I
mistaken?  I can't feel any seam below the rub rail, it
feels like and appears to be composite with the hull.  The
gutter is a separate piece that sets on top of the rub rail
and there is a seam there.

It's frustrating because I went to the
other boat after they anchored and politely told them I had
100' of chain out (a 4:1 scope) and they were too
close.  They said they would "keep an eye on
it".  We should have moved then, but there are very
few choices right now.  The collision occured due to wind
adverse to current and the propensity for their Cabo Rico to
"sail" on the anchor.
