    I need some new rub rails for my Gheenoe 15'4''. I emailed Gheenoe and they said I could purchase them for pickup from them (way to far away from my home) or I had to order them from a Gheenoe dealer and they would deliver them with a boat delivery. The problem I have is my local dealer does not sell Gheenoes anymore and the ones that are closest to me may not be getting a boat order for quite a while. Any ideas on where to get them?????????

    Ask Taco where to get them locally.

    my experience with taco marine is that they only wanted to sell to dealers and such :-/ if you can find it on the taco web site any local dealer that deals with them should be able to get it otherwise in a last ditch effort you might try posting up on the custom gheenoe site and maybe one of the guys close to the shop will get it and ship it to you? have you even called them yet? custom gheenoe??? i've ordered stuff from them and they've always shipped to my home

    I did not try custom Gheenoe just Gheenoe. Thanks for the suggestion. NoeEttica it ain't BFE, but I think I can see it from here. I am about as far away from the rest of Florida as you can be without actually leaving the state. Anyway, thanks again for the inputs guys.

    I will ask my Shipper about Details ... They Would Have to be Wrapped and Packed Into a Piece of 3" Pipe With Caps The Packing and Shipping Would Be more than the Rails !

    I found Taco rub rails at West marine for $78 each and they are 16'6". They look like a perfect match. Here is a link to the West Marine page. Hope this helps someone else out too.
