Teak Hand Rails Installed

Ya baby take a look:

I first drilled holes through the cabin top that matched the handrail spacing.  I used the hand rails as my measuring device.  I sealed the cabin top holes with epoxy prior to installation.

I used 2″ stainless screws with fender washers from the underside of the cabin to secure the handrails.  They’re rock solid.

I applied silicone under the handrails prior to installation and wiped up the excess with a rag soaked in alcohol.  Trust me, it will ooze out.

The teak handrails really finish off the look of the cabin top.  The also provide an excellent hand hold from the dock and create an ideal place to attach fenders.

Summary:

Kilburn really nailed the look of this boat.  Hat’s off to his great eye and design work.  I’m so impressed with the overall outcome.
