Like your boat. I'm refitting a 40' Young Brothers and was wondering what you used for your rub rail? Good luck with the sale and upgrade.

its just the heavy dury pvc extrusion from Hamilton marine part # 973-R
if u can use white instead of the black ones the white lasts a lot longer.....doesn't get as hot and therefore less brittle over time

Nice neat job on the wiring layout! And labels too, someone thought this out. I see this and think that the other maintenance issued aboard are going to be addressed with the same meticulous care.

thanks! yah that label maker is about the best investment one can make it was like 30 bucks at sams club and a 3 pack of tape was another 30 bucks its been 2 years and I still have a pack of tape left for it.... I cant stand looking at a breaker then going around to the other side of the panel and having to guess which one it is....so much easier to spend 5 mins and just label everything. I try to label anything on the boat we did it on the longliner I was on in Alaska and It saves so much time in the course of your day....also if you ever have an emergency and tell someone to go shut something off or do something the labels make it doable without knowing how everything on the boat is rigged.... plus just labeling when all your safety gear expires, up in the wheelhouse I have labels with when all the safety gear needs batteries or re pack...cg phone number incase u ever have to call them and the radio doesn't work and just random phone numbers I always need and cant remember(mmm pizza) ....also really handy for labeling part #'s and wrench sizes/ adjustments on the engine.... I went to school for marine systems and worked as a shore engineer for a number of years so I got sick of dealing with other peoples lack of caring on how stuff was set up to be serviced....its a lot easier if you lay the boat out around having to work on it....like when I put the new deck stringers and risers in I made sure they weren't in the way of getting at anything on the engine so if you have to tear something apart you can get in there and get a wrench on it easily which is really nice you can get down below the deck easily (im 6'4" and can do it) and reach right over to get at most anything on the engine...
