rubrail for 18' ?

Are the corners at the transom miter cut or bent 90degrees?
I am installing a new rubrail today (hopefully) and plan to start at each stern end and work my way forward.
Is this a good way or is there a better way?

They are miter cut.
You need to seal the seam with black caulk.

George - The rubrail on an 18 is one continuous piece. Find the middle of your new black rubber insert, and start at the front and work to the back on each side. This is where you cut as necessary to fit under the Marinium cap.

I think both of the above posts are correct.
I believe the Rub Rail consist of 3 pieces accoriding to the Reference section on this forum.
The "L" shaped, white plastic, nylon piece is mitered in 3 places on my 1985 Outrage 18..... The bow and both aft corners. The Black Rubber does not appear to have any miters and is one continuous piece.

The kit comes with 3 pieces, two white and pne black. I now know for sure that the 90 degree corners are mitered. However it IS necessary to remove the marinium bow chock piece to replace the rubrail.
I have managed to destroy the mounting screws on my bow chock. (see my other post"I broke my-" for details. Otherwise the rubrail installation is going well.
