Clarification of legal fitting replacement

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this class having just purchsed a J 22 and I need clarification on a couple of issues.


The angled mast step, can I laser cut and produce the fitting for my boat, or am I required to purchase through a Builder/dealer?


The same question applies in regard to the Stainless Steel Hand rails and the replacement of the teak rails with plastic ones? Can we manufacture the replacement parts ourselves?

The mast plate is easy. It has to come from a licensed builder. There has been a bit of controversy centered on that area of the boat over the years. </ understatement


The SS rails are a bit more of a grey area, are they "basic deck hardware"???...


The toerails are a custom extrusion. Tough to source and tougher to manufacture..


The good news is all that stuff is in stock at Waterline. www.waterlinesystems.com

If you have boat questions, I can probably answer most of 'em... e-mail me:
