Freeman Cruiser Aluminium Rubbing Strake Length

The Freeman Cruiser Aluminium Rubbing Strake is the pliable aluminium profile protective band found around the boat and has been designed to accept the Freeman Rubber Insert to help protect your boat from knocks and impacts.

The Freeman Cruiser Aluminium Rubbing Strake Length is part of the full Freeman Cruiser Classic Rubbing Strakes which is the combination of the mahogany strake, this aluminium strake, and the rubber insert usually found on the 'Classic Range' of Freeman Cruisers and some Freeman 24' & Freeman 27's. This aluminium boat rubbing strake is designed to accept the Freeman Cruiser Classic Rubbing Strake Rubber insert.

The 'Upper Rubbing Strake', as it is usually referred to, is found around the toe rail (on the edge of the deck) and the Freeman Cruiser Lower Rubbing Strake is usually found roughly halfway between the deck and the waterline.

We try to carry in stock most of the original Freeman rubbing strakes including the Upper wood, aluminium and rubber combination and the Lower mahogany strakes. We also carry the Freeman rubber inserts separately including the Freeman Cruiser Classic Rubbing Strake Rubber, and the Freeman 24 and 27 Rubbing Strake Rubber for the aluminium channel found on some of the New Style Freemans. We can also offer repair sections of the larger mahogany rubbing strakes found on many of the bigger boats too.

Freeman Cruiser Classic Upper Rubbing Strake

The traditional Freeman Cruiser Upper Rubbing Strake is situated around the toe rail (near to the deck) and consists of a Mahogany Rubbing Strake Wood, an Aluminium Rubbing Strake Channel and Rubber Section combination which all work together to help disperse any impacts and make the cruiser look smart. Usually found, on many Freeman Cruisers, including the Freeman 22's, 23's, 25's, 26's, 28's and some of the New Style Freeman 24's and 27's.

Full kits are available for delivery and collection and individual elements can be ordered by telephone too. Each kit comprises of:

  • Mahogany Rubbing Strake Wood:- Lengths of 12ft mahogany 'D' section straight length which can be prepared, varnished and screwed to the superstructure of your boat.
  • Mahogany Rubbing Strake Curves:- On some Freeman Cruisers (typically F22 Mk2's & F26's) there is a step-in-the-deck that requires a Mahogany Rubbing Strake Curve (one on each side) which follows the design of the toe rail and can be prepared, varnished and screwed to the superstructure of your boat.
  • Aluminium Rubbing Strake Channel:- Lengths of specially softened 12ft aluminium channel straights which can be prepared and screwed to the Mahogany Rubbing Strake Wood so that the Rubber section can be inserted and held in place. The aluminium is softened to allow bending around corners for example.
  • Rubber Section:- A length of black rubber that can be inserted into the Aluminium Channel to finish off the Upper Rubbing Strake and help disperse an impact.
  • Mastic Tape:- Mastic sealing strip that goes between the Mahogany Rubbing Strake Wood and the boat. The mastic tape is a flexible tape that is designed to move with the twists and movements of the boat so that a weatherproof bond is created to prevent water access.
  • Screws:- A set of screws are supplied for attaching the wood to the boat and another set of screws is supplied to attach the aluminium channel to the wood.
  • Other items you may require:- The Freeman Upper Rubbing Strake Kits provide the main elements for you to complete the job however you will need varnish, thinners and brushes, sand paper, for example, to complete your renovation.
