Zip Interior Finishing

Post by cusoak »

I am now going to get ready to go back to Columbus for the winter.
My winter project is to finish up my Zip.
With that in mind I want to put some rubber around the inside of the where the deck and plywood cover the inside.
Will cover that with the same vinyl as the seats.
What I am looking for is a 1/2 round rubber that will go on first.
Any suggestions on where and what to use.

I've thought about pipe or swim noodles if you want to go that big.

Classic Boat Connection sells half round 1 1/2" diameter close cell foam that is usually used with fabric to trim around the cockpits.

I have rubber rub rails from Wefco mfg. Its nothing more than half round rubber (solid, not hollow) and they can make any length you need and several widths. I bought 32 ft of 3/4" so that the entire rub rail would be one piece. It was about 50$. I meant for it to be temporary as I had trouble fitting the SS rub rail I first bought and needed something so that I could quickly finish for the 2010 Gathering but its still on there.

Whatever you have in mind they probably have something that will work. I like the idea of using small diameter pipe insulation too
