Custom Deck Railing

This thread discusses the Content article: Custom Deck Railing

I really like the railings and holders you made they look very nice,not so sure the bow strengthener nose piece is a good idea.If you hit someones boat i think your going to do some real damage to it and they wont be too happy when they see what yours is made from,far safer to use some rubber trim on the bow its less likeley to damage yours or there boats ;) .

I gotta be honest in saying, I really don't like the look of the railing and the nose piece. It's creative but does not add realism in my opinion. I guess rubber would be better to soften the blow, but if you are going to hit at that single point of the boat, the impact and force are going to crack and damage the hull regardless of what material is used as a minor bumper. Not only that, but you have to now go to the extra step in removing the material addded in order to repair the hull.

I think it looks great! If guys want to do it without the nose piece, that's easy do do...the main idea here is to show people how to make a custom railing and I think this is well illustrated in this article.

Thank you for submitting this Martin. Always great to get articles submitted by other boaters! :drinks:
