Default Boats Without Rub Rails.....help!!!!

Just purchased Cigarette Gladiator (No Rub Rails) Any suggestions as to how you tie up to fixed piers and pilings without damaging the paint.

I would`nt worry about it. Most piers and pilings are bare wood and don`t have any paint on them to begin with....

I agree, most piers and wood pillings are pretty durable and it would be almost impossible to damage them with you fiberglass resin bucket..........

I tie the fender horizontally around the pilings. So far so good.

Good Luck would be a lot of help...


Roger.... yahhh kill me man...


Seriously you could get those huge foam pads but they look so gay it defeats the purpose of owning the boat in the first place...

I owned a Gladiator and it drove me nuts that it didn't have rub rails. You just have to be really careful and have good help on board at all times.
