Product QuestionsQuestion by: Trevor Page on 1 Jan 2016 16:21:00Over the years we have supplied Prout Catamarans with a variety of aluminium extrusions and PVC inserts so there is a good chance that PVC 18 would suit your needs.
As always with replacement inserts we recommend that you first obtain a product sample from us to match up to your existing fendering to ensure that the correct product is supplied.
Free samples can be ordered through our website or by contacting our sales office directly.

We do have a smaller profile but unfortunately it is a non-stock item.
The profile is called PVC 16 and further details can be found here: https://www.wilks.co.uk/marine/boat-fendering/inserts/pvc-16.html
We are sorry that we cannot be of more assistance with your enquiry.
