Default 87 242 Ls with Silent Thunder

Hi Formula owners,
I'm looking for any information on where I can find a replacement molding/rub rail for the silent thunder swim platform for our 242 ls. This is the molding/rub rail where the two halves of the swim platform join. I have contacted Formulas boats, but have not received any response. The original molding/rub rail is cracked.
As always, any information would be greatly appreciated,
Regards,
Tony S.

This might be close. Best to contact the company for a sample. I'll add that I bought a piece off an '87 and it was slightly different to the one on my '89. Considering the silent thunder is separate from the rest of the boat, you may be able to replace it and have it look good without it being a 100 percent match.

Thanks very much for your reply. When you posted contact the company I assume you meant Integrity corporation and not Formula. Right now our 242 ls in winter storage in New Hampshire. I wish I would have brought the molding home so I could have it at my house. Spring is around the corner!
Again, Many Thanks for answering the post.
