    Default rub rail removal??

    i was looking at the rear of my boat and noticed the rub rail is crooked. is there end caps i could get to terminate the rail on the side but clean up the rear. it wouldnt ever hit anything with the headers and jet sticking out.

    Depending on the rail there may be end caps. But more importantly the seam that is likely under that rubrail will be very unsightly unless you cap it there with gel (or have someone do it). To a large degree that is why they use rubrail on production boats (expense of capping). On the sides it has a purpose, not so much on the back except to hide the seam.

    when capping is it usually just gel? or will i need glass work as well? i am not new to glass by any means and can get that done no issues, just wanna know what im getting myself into before i start drilling rivets out.

    To elaborate capping is more than gel. Thread above looks pretty good except many pics are missing cause its so old I guess.
