Dear Jan,

why not have them made of teak, much more beautiful and will last forever! I had them made this way on my 38/067 (and di the same onboard Vanessa) and were so good (beautiful )!

Fair winds!

Dear Jan,

it is easily possible to make the rubber inserts yourself. Take one of your old inserts to measure the thickness - we found a rubber plate at a normal DIY store but you can find similar material on eBay. Then you just need to glue the layers together (the frame overlaps the lower layer to hold it in place).
Teak certainly looks great, though.

Fair winds,
