Duckboard & Stern Rails

Material

Purpose

It's the small practical things on a boat that make your life easier.

Duckboard and stern rails are attached to the back (the stern) of the boat, usually on the duckboard or transom. They are custom built to be either removable or fixed from a range of different diameter stainless tube and are important for safety and a convenient way to free up space on your duckboard ... meaning more room to play.

They can be used to setup a variety of marine and boating accessories including, but not limited to Cookout BBQs, bait boards, rod holders, flag or awning poles and dinghy, tender or outboard mounts.

Our duckboard and stern rails are electropolished in-house to reduce tea staining and increase the longevity of your rails.

Solid or Wire Mid Rails

Our duckboard and stern rails can incorporate either solid mid rails or wire mid rails and are manufactured to be removable or fixed.

Your design or ours.

Installation

Duckboard and stern rails can either be fixed or removable, depending on your requirements.

Fixed Rails

Fixed duckboard and stern rails are more secure than removable stern rails as the post is welded to the foot of the rail. There is usually more benefit in opting for a fixed rail when mounting tenders to the aft of a vessel, when this tender may be attached to the stern rail via snap davit. In this scenario a fixed rail also allows for teardrop shaped foot pads and bracing legs, which can achieve better support for carrying heavier loads.

Fixed rails include:

  • Base plates fabricated from round or teardrop shaped foot pads
  • Include countersunk holes to suit 12-gauge countersunk screw fixings or 12-gauge countersunk machine thread bolts

Removable Rails

Removable duckboard and stern rails rails are a great option when rails need to be used for safety for example, when a larger gathering of people are onboard but may then need to be removed when the vessel is being utilised for fishing. Another example; removing the rails if a jet ski or tender needs to be mounted on the duckboard while in transit. Then re-installing the rails to the duckboard for safety while moored.

Removable rails include:

  • Supplied with female flush deck mounts
    • Flush deck mounts have PVC inner sleeve to allow easier removal of stainless rails once installed
  • Include countersunk holes to suit 12-gauge countersunk screw fixings or 12-gauge countersunk machine thread bolts

We can also quote to include the required fixings (Nylok nuts, bolts, washers and backing plates), if required.

Custom Fabrication

All of our stainless steel duckboard and stern rails are custom designed and fabricated to suit the curves of the vessel's duckboard.
