Traditional Freeman Rubbing Strake
This is traditionally made up with a D section mahogany, topped with an aluminium channel and a rubber insert.
To make your boat look like new why not replace the rubbing strake. It is a reasonably easy job for most DIY'ers, especially over winter while your boat is on hard standing.
The rubbing strake wood, aluminium and rubber are supplied in lengths suitable for your boat and can be sent to you directly or collected from the Freeman Shop.
Odd lengths are often available for repairs and patches.
Don't forget to finish your new job off with some Bumper Care on the rubber to make it shine.
Freeman Alternative Rubbing Strake
As used on some of the New Style Range cruisers,this comprises of a larger aluminium section and is finished with a rubber insert. It was used in three sizes, the two larger sizes as used on the Freeman 30's and 41 is still available, the smaller size was used on the Freeman 24's and 27's.
The special Freeman 24 / 27 style rubbing strake rubber is produced by us especially for your boats. It's available by the coil (enough for a Freeman 27 and plenty for a 24) or by the metre.
Lower Rubbing Strakes
The lower rubbing strakes on the Freeman boats are available, either in complete units or some specially shaped wood sections for repair jobs.
