Customer Question

I have a 30 ft Sea Ray 2009 and I have isolated a leak on the rub rail my question is how is the rub rail affixed to the hull is it screwed into the fiberglass or is there a nut on the back side which would require me removing interior covering

On the 30 I am pretty sure they simply used screws. Pull back the rubber insert and remove a couple to be sure, it is pretty unlikely they would through bolt on that small a boat.

I will try that I hope you are correct
Expert:  Ted G. replied 2 years ago.
They typically will not go to the trouble and expense of through bolting on smaller boats. But of course, that's why some start to leak. I can't be definitive because they often change from one year to the next and I have not personally dealt with that year and model. But I think you should be fine.
