Heat and a rubber mallet.

Pete--I cannot believe you gave this thread the title "Rub Rail issue." ISSUE? You are going to have to start efforting avoidance of that usage.

P.S. I hate effort as verb, too.

Re the black vinyl insert and getting in back into the receiver track: it is amazing how use of a moderate amount of heat will increase the flexibility of the vinyl insert, making it very simple to re-insert it into the rigid plastic receiver track of the rub rail of your Boston Whaler boat.

A long soak in the hot tub helped but still needed a heat gun. My fingers were blistered afterwards, wear gloves!
