Installing a new teak toerail on a 36' sailboat.

cold bending the new toerail Once the old toerail was removed, installing the new one meant bending it into shape.  This was done with clamps, ropes and Yankee Ingenuity!  (That's what you call that upright where the bend begins!)


another view of the bend Here is another view of the new toerail during the installation.


last clamp in place Here is the final clamping.  It lined up the old part of the toe rail perfectly with the new piece.


scarf between old and new toerail parts Here is a close up of the scarfed joint.  See how nice she looks?   In a short while, anyone who doesn't know the joint is there will have a hard time finding it.
