Default Gunnel supplier??





Anyone know where you can buy sticks of this stuff? My boat has the classic round gunnel on it but it's bent, dented, and even crushed in a few places.

I'd like to replace it with something along these lines:


I've been searching for gunnels, extruded aluminum, extruded gunnels, and about anything else I can think of to try and find a supplier with no luck.

Try the website, eastern metal supply. I found one there a couple years ago.

Have you looked into the T lock gunnels? My new boat has them and they are great! Very useful for fishing and hunting, no need to drill any holes.

Yes, but can't find those anywhere either.

Maybe contact a boat builder and see if you can purchase it? There's 2 or 3 on the east side of Iowa.

When I had my boat built I had them weld the t-slot to the gunnel. I purchased it from 80/20 and shipped it to the boat builder. It's fairly reasonable.
