Rub rail purchase


Patrick McAneny
 

I have sent a cross section of my rubrail ,from my Super Maramu to Techno Rubber Industries in Fla. ,they will produce a die and sample for my inspection . I intend to place an order as soon as I receive the sample and final pricing. The die will cost me $450.00 ,the rub rail will run somewhere around $11 per ft. ,roughly $1200. The more boats ordering would bring the price down and I would like to share the cost of the die. The rub rail would be slightly off white. Another owner of a Mango has already purchased from this company and was happy with the service and product. Shipping to Maryland where I live is roughly estimated to be about $200.
So if anyone would like to join me in a group buy ,please email me at , sailw32@... . I will give the final number of orders to the company as soon as I get the sample from them. They will then give me a final price based on the number of orders ,the more the less. I will probably place the order within the next ten days,so please get back to me ASAP.
Thanks,

Hi Pat,
I see Karen was estimating < $900.  We'll not need as much length as you (SN vs SM) - I'll measure it. I see Techno is in Miami, so I can just pick it up and won't need shipping.
Thanks,
Craig

Craig, They did ,but they were never able to get the company to place the order and Karen and Bill gave up on it. I stayed in contact with Bill as I was anxious to place an order, because I am repainting my boat and need to know if I can take off the old rubrail. I have waited so long that they are now sanding the boat and things are not finalized. But I have faith that is order will go thru quickly.  I will include you on the list to order. Email me direct with your info.
Thanks,
Pat

Hi Pat,
I never heard from Bill&Karen that they gave up.  If that's true, count me in.

Kent, I checked with Bill yesterday since so much time had passed and I needed to know if I was gettting a new rub rail. He told me he had no luck with the company he was dealing with initially .Another owner had purchased from this company,so I contacted them and they do exactly this type product and seem eager to have our business. Sent them a cross section today,expect to have a sample very soon and confirm pricing based on the number of feet purchased. They said lead time was about two weeks. I will put you on the list. 

I need to confirm if 52 ft. per side is correct for a SM and if a Maramu and SN has the same rub rail design.
Thanks,
Pat

Pat (& Kent and others interested),
In a previous post I recall Joel Potter confirmed that the SN and the SM had the same rub rail (SN shorter, of course). I just reread his post and he says the Maramu is different.
I see that the company you got, Techno Rubber Industries in Miami, manufactures inflatable boat rub rails for some of the big brands, or perhaps, just supplies replacements for them (they are showing the logos of Avon, Zodiac, etc. on their web page). Sounds like a great choice.

Eric, My hull number is #123,

Craig, I agree they seem to produce a large variety of marine products.They have been very proactive in dealing with me. I need a new bumper ,I may ask about that,but I assume they do mostly extrusions. Could someone confirm that the Maramu is the same or not in regarding the rub rail.
Thanks,
Pat

Here's what Joel said in his post: 
"There were a couple of different rub rails for the Mango and just one, all but certain, on the Sharks and Maramu. They share nothing in common with the Santorin and Super Maramu insert.

Craig, So the rub rail will only fit the SM and Santorin. Thanks for that info.

Techno Rubber Industries received my rub rail sample and just sent a firm quote. The price per foot went down $2.50 a foot,however the die and design went up about $200, still the overall cost is much less than the original quote and the more owners placing an order would reduce the cost of the die per owner. 

As of now three owners have placed an order. The cost will be $8.90/ft x 104 ft = 925.60
Cost of design and die split three ways will be  $640.00 / 3 = 213
925 + 213= $ 1,138. 
So the cost for a new off white rubrail for a SM will be $1,138. , that cost will be reduced further if more owners join this group purchase. A few months ago when Bill and Karen tried to organize a group purchase I believe that there was at least 8 owners interested in purchasing a new rub rail. I hope they read and respond to this ,if they are still interested .If you are interested to join in this purchase there is only about a week to do so.
Tomorrow I will pay for the design and die , they will make a sample within a week and then do the production run a week later. We will each pay individually by credit card directly and they will ship directly to each owner. So please contact me directly if you are interested in joining the purchase.
Thanks,
Pat

Vladimir, I have a sketch that Maude sent me,which I will send. But the rub rail is going to be fabricated based on an actual piece of rubrail to be certain it is an exact reproduction. They will send me a sample before production begins. I have paid for the design/die so the order is in the works. The order will be placed within the next ten days, so I urge anyone interested to join the group buy soon. The more owners that place an order will bring the price even lower.
 Thanks,

Pat  I am the owner of a Maramu hull 185 and am going to also replace the rubrail but as I understand it is quite different than the one you are ordering.  Only send this to let you know that I am also in the process of ordering a die to do a new rub rail from Techno Rubber Industries also.  Only mention it as they may be even sharper on pricing if a couple of different Amel models are ordering from them.  I don’t have any idea if other Maramu or Sharki owers would like to replace their rub rail but getting more order for a custom part always saves money and after thirty years or so they do need replacing.

Jim, I was just going to write you to tell you that your rubrail is of a different design,so I could not include you in our order,too bad. There may well be other Maramu owners wanting to join your order,making it cheaper for all.
Good Luck,
Pat

I did understand that but in conversation and email with the company I mentioned there are a lot of us Amelians out there so it could be a really good market for a deifferent rub rail for Maramus and Sharkis.

 

Thanks for finding them as they seem quite capable.

 

Best Regards

Jim

Jim,
I'm curious if your Maramu rub rail might be similar to our Mango hull #62, built in 1986.  What did you send them to confirm the profile?  Are you able to post a picture of your rub rail profile?

I am not sure exactly on the various rub rails but they are for sure different.  The information I have is that the Maramu and Sharki are the same.  If you wush I will send you a drawing of the die when it is done.

You might ask Joel Porter he may know.
