I was in Florida this past week and while picking up at the boat launch in a 2' falling tide, my bow rocked up under a dock and knocked part of the rub rail out of place. I pushed most of it in by hand, but one part is tough to get back in. It's like getting a rain poncho back in those little bags, never easy! Is there any harm in water getting in there? How have most of you dealt with this situation if you 've had it happen? I hate to unscrew the whole rub rail at the stern and re-insert it for fear that it will be even harder. The boat is an Outrage 19' Classic.

rubber hammers do wonders for this type of thing, depending on what style rub rail you have.

I vote for the rubber hammer. I had to redo my wiring and ran it thru new double piece rub rail. Had to remove 1/2 of the rail to do so and had to use a rubber hammer to get it back in place.
