If you are referring to the fendering strip, I had trouble with the rubbery plastic trim falling out of the aluminium channel due to shrinkage with age. Birchwood kindly supplied me with replacement trim strip at reasonable cost.

I had the same problem on a Fairline I had before my Birchwood and they used the same trim so I think it is pretty common. Its a sort of D shaped rubbery insert which fits into channeled aluminium and covers the rivets - is that what you are after?
The Birchwood website is www.birchwood.co.uk and I ordered by e-mail through that. Actually they sent me loads and I may have circa 10-15 meters of the stuff left. How much do you need?

Many thanks for the reply, I have a 18ft Dateline Bounty. The trim would be required to go round the whole boat.....rough gestimate......42-43ft.....

It's the same stuff I think....D shaped with rubber insert to cover the mounting screws......

If you have any spare Let me know how much you want for it and we will arrange something.......


Kindest Regards
