The gathering attendees will certainly appreciate your efforts! Actually looks rather majestic sitting up there on her throne.

For S/S rub rail (hollow) you can try Tubesales Qld P/L at Yatala 07-32872874, ask for Cooper. They told me they were not going to restock anymore but they may still have some leftover stock. Also in the "Afloat" magazine a mob called Custom Engineering are advertising solid S/S rub rail Ph 02-99973135.

Thanks for the info. Tube Sales is definitely out of 1/2" and won't be getting any more in the foreseeable future. I'll try Custom Engineering. You can get 3/4" ok from Ultra Marine (local agent for 316 shop) in Brissy, but solid is VERY expensive.

Hollow back can take a good lick. That's what I use.
