Iím looking to replace the teak railings on my Ď92 CD 19 with stainless. Does anyone know of a good maker in the Seattle-Portland area? Iíve called Railmakers in Everett and was told they were backed up for months.

Has anyone installed off-the-shelf rails that were satisfactory?

Thanks for any responses.

Have you tried contacting the NMI factory to see if they have any extras laying around the shop? If not, another source should be PDR Marine / Pooderbuilt, where NMI gets most of their railing made. Both are in Bellingham Wa.

Yes, That is what I would do...They must have access to some or buy them in bulk... I had inside rails made to match the spacing on the outside rails ...that way there are no extra holes...works fine...and sometimes you need rails to grab onto in heavy seas...

It may be unnecessary to say this, but whatever solution you choose, be aware of the problem of matching the length and spacing of your existing rails to avoid drilling extra holes and patching the original holes, including the gelcoat color match problem.

It might well be that the spacing and length of the stainless steel rails is different than the teak ones, or might have varied over the years.

Best solution in that case is to have new ones custom made to match your existing pattern.

Good Luck!
