Re: No steekin rails fer
Posted by terry on Jan 12, 2005
I'm not crazy about rails, but mostly because I'm so weight conscious in my boats. They do add a few pounds, afterall.
Someone a while back proposed using lengths of brass half oval instead. Maybe six feet on each side. Certainly easier to prepare and install, but not the aesthetic touch of nice wood rails.
But the wooden rails do make nice tack boards for notes, ads, and all the other stuff I usually put on my refridgerator. Really adds color to a kayak!
