Rubrails after glassing are also cool. Some folk who really bang up their rails prefer it that way so they can replace them more easily. As far as the cracking and allowing water staining - I'm assumimg we're still talking about the rubrails and not the hull? If it's the rails, a few coats of epoxy followed up with several coats of good marine varnish for UV protection will do you fine.
Enjoy your 17, then build a second kayak next year so you can try out all the neat stuff the OLD guys on this forum teach you. That's what I'm doing.
All the best.....
