Howdy y'all. My '14 A22 rub rails have gotten a bit beat up over the past summer (combination of lazy tie-offs and my wife's driving...)

Anyone replaced theirs? Do I contact Axis/my dealer for replacement rails?

Also, don't trust your buddy to put your baby back on the trailer in decent wind...

Thanks for y'alls help

The plastic corners are no big deal. About 15$ each from the dealer. You have to drill the holes for the screws by yourself.
I'm not so sure about the other damage to your rubrail, though. Looks like you'd have to replace the whole side from the front to the back plastic corners where the individual parts are joined underneath. That might cost a tad more and I also don't know how easy it is to remove the old rubrail and insert a new song me. Maybe someone else can chime in on this one.

Mine was replaced, but it was warranty. They did the whole starboard side piece. Wish I could tell you how much. Did you bend the trailer guide pole loading the boat?

The side pieces that run the length of the boat are $120 each. Shipping can run more than the cost of the item. I bought a new one over the winter but haven't installed it yet. I can't tell by the pic but if the side piece isn't broken, you could wipe the white marks off with a rag and a dab of acetone.

Let a friend attempt to load her onto the trailer in effort to save time- needless to say the boat was almost completely horizontal over the trailer. Got very lucky the prop didn't get damaged or chew up the runners on the trailer. New unpainted guide rail from Boatmate runs ~$70 with shipping.

Wtstaple- did the factory warranty cover the rail or did you have some type of extra coverage? I would assume they would classify rub rail damage normal wear and tear and wouldn't cover it.

For those of you that have ordered replacement rub rail - is the hardware included?
Entire bow rub rail needs replacement including the 3 connector edge pieces.

Post up the info you find out. I need a new nose piece from when my wife came into the dock a little too hot. As far as your question on hardware, I would imagine the existing screws are reusable.
