Eyebrow trim in the Bay Area?

Post by SFBaysailor »

I went out to my boat today for the first time in a few months. Life gets in the way of boat projects... Anyway, while washing off the ridiculous accumulation of ash before power washing, I started looking at the ‘eyebrow’ trim, the one that runs right above the ports. I don’t think it’s going to be worth saving judging from the amount of crud coming out from behind it.

Does anyone in the Bay Area know who might sell this trim? Online suppliers sell it in 5’ lengths, and I really don’t want joints in the middle of the run... Probably looking for 12-14 footers.

Thanks for any help!

I keep thinking that one day I'm going to yank that stuff off ("eyebrow trim", huh?), paint the groove brown and be done with something that is so completely non-functional. Any reason not to?

I had a Sabre 34 once and had eyebrows on the coach roof - Sabre had exact drawings of the eyebrow profile. I replaced mine and one other boat's pieces. You need a dimensional profile of the eyebrow, take it to a wood shop company and have them tool it.... suggestion...

The eyebrow theory being that water would be flowed away from the port lights.... in practice, as an example on the F 35 P, is a non sequitur - I think...

I think you’re both right. That said, my decks are gray and a pain to match with epoxy tint, so I’m going to fill the old holes and drill nice new ones next to them...
