Thread: Rail kit for a v-drive...

  1. #1
    I am going to go with a rail kit in my Spectra 24.
    I dont need a full lenght stringer set-up because my v-drive already has mounts. I just want to go 3/4 of the stringers and include the rudder in the rails.
    Who does this work and what should I expect to pay?

    Are you just talking the angles and backing plates only, or motorplates too?

  3. #3
    I need everything.

    You can buy a ROUGH premade setup for 375 or so. I don't think it comes with motorplates. It will work, but you will have to do some of your own work to finish it.
    A nice setup would start out at 650 or so for a basics or something in the 1000 range for a custom setup with the rudder brace you are talking about. It is pricey, but you only have to buy it once, and it is custom made for your boat.

    Brent, I made my own. I sure some of the guys on here can help you do the same.

    Get some 3x3 alum. angle 3/16's thick for the rails. Cost around 65 bucks.

    Buying material is not the problem, its making the parts.
    Do you have any pics of rail kits in cruisers? If so please post.

    No photos! Should be just like a flat bottom don't you think? Just bolt the rails to the stingers on the inside , use a level on them. What kind of motor are you going to use? Do you have a bland saw?

    Industrial Metals in Sun Valley will have everything you need to get it done. That and a bandsaw or sawzall and your set.
    When you send it out to be polished, they will do the clean up on the edges.
    Angle and flat stock and git busy.
