Re: Rub Rails.

I encapsulated my mahogony rails as part of the sheer with fiberglass cloth, epoxy and then varnish. This means that if I have to replace them, I'll have to grind them off. However, as they have been armor plated, I'm amazed at the bashings they have survived.

I guess what I'm getting at, is that they are meant to take most of the abuse above the waterline, so the better protected they are, the longer they will last.

You;ve probably hera folk like Terry Mcadams talk about using brass rub rails - gives you some idea of what they are expected to endure.
