I just purchsed a 1972 CC Lancer 23. The previous owners used the rub rail as a fender and bent it in numerous places. Does anyone know where I can purchase a replacement one. Thanks. David

I cannot vouch for either one, but try West Marine or Defender. That's all the info that was given to me regarding the same rail. I never did the search to replace mine, decided I could live with the old for a while.

Try Taco Metals. You're looking for aluminum with a flexible vinyl insert. If you feel like being a bit more spendy, you can upgrade to Stainless with vinyl. The stainless is a lot harder to work with though.

The page you ant at Taco is:

Bayliner used a rubrail that can be used, aluminium with black rubber centre, check profile and dimensions carefully before buying! Have used it for my my 23' Lancer looks very good, dimensions are within a couple of mm to the original.
