Kyle -

What do you need? Overall or closeup, since I'll be out with my digital tomorrow, and can stop by the boat, shoot and email them to you.

Kyle, I've e-mailed you two shots of the new heavy duty rub rail on my boat.

The rub rails of a Boston Whaler GUARDIAN are shown in this CETACEA article:

This may be of help to you.

Thanks all,

The one on that guardian looks like about what I am wanting. The pics sent that were sent to me of the Taco rail seem nice as well. I was wanting one that covered that whole flat where the rail screws on , which is around 2 1/2 tall. Anyone got any close ups ?

Thanks again everyone.

Kyle, the Taco rail featured in those photos I sent you is 2 3/8 tall, so it covers most, but not all, of the gunwale edge. The large rubber rail is so dominant it LOOKS like it's completely covering the entire edge, and it is complete in it's protection.

When my buddy was injured two months ago the Coast Guard tied me up on an unprotected section of dock next to a pier that was covered in barnacles and other growth. I was occupied with more important things, so the boat rubbed back and forth against the pier as people climbed on and off the boat for ten minutes before I could get in position to fend off and re-tie. The rail did it's job beautifully. It suffered minor scuffing, but protected the hull completely.
