Does anyone have a toe-rail similar to my 1984 Nauticat 43? Looks like a commercially available toe rail. I am trying to track down the manufacturer. The stanchion base looks to have two bolts only that bolt onto the rail and I can’t see one that goes down into the deck but there may be one. The base is a fitted item that slots into the shape of the toe rail. I am after new bases. I can have them manufactured (which is a faff) but if I can find the vendor I might be able to buy some.

I bought two bases a few years ago for my Nauticat 40. They came quite quickly.
I think for a period Nauticat used a company called Jukova Oy, a Finish company;

The rail stanchion bases are cq where manufactered by Jukova.com in Finland.
Info i found on this forum. I thought.
There web info on old products is little rusty.
So you have to call them.
There is no bolt that goes into the deck.
I guess you need the S-97 or the S-98.
I’m interested in the costs.
We have repaired several bases on our NC35 with Helicoils.

I had heard that they were bespoke made but if you can find a manf. that’s amazing. I need one for our 42!20th May 2019 at 8:31 pm #53894
I have very similar on my 1994 Nauticat 39 and need to replace a couple which are starting to crack. Also very interested in the cost and availability.20th May 2019 at 10:47 pm #53899
Great info chaps – thanks! I will contact Jukova and see what they can provide for all our boats, and get an idea of coats.
On my NC43 I will have to remove the teal hand rail and so I am thinking to take the whole lot off and replace all the bases as many are cracked and doubtless the others are coming to the end of their lives so I might as well bite the bullet.

Thanks for the info Arjan and Gordon – you are correct. The bases are made by Jukova Corporation Oy Tel. +358 10 474 4241 firstname.lastname@example.org and I dealt with email@example.com who looks after these products and speaks good english. These ones were the AS097 model and they had 66 in stock. I ordered 20 (I need 18 and planning to fit two more to strengthen the push-pit where the liferaft is attached) and this cost €20 a unit plus VAT at 24% plus €60 carriage to the UK.
I will let you know how I get on with fitting them. Only two bolts into the rail – phew.
