    Default Rubrail Install

    I was going to have this done by a professional but really do not want to make a long drive with the bare hull. This will be my first rubrail install and I have some questions for those that have done it correctly. Rivets? What type? What are the tricks to getting it perfect. Point me in the right direction. If anyone has pictures that would be great. Thanks, Jerry

    Default cap

    Capping this hull would be sick, but as my Dad once told me... Shit in one hand and wish in the other, see which one gets filled first. $$$$$

    Aluminum,fill in old holes and drill new holes. Use stainless screws instead of rivets. http://www.rubrails.com/aluminum_half_oval.html I used the
    ALO-32 Aluminum Half Oval Rub Rail - 12 Ft. very ez to work with. Just lay it out so you have the least amount of joints on the sides.

    Default Rubrail

    Todd can probably help you the best. But the only special trick I know is when bending the rubrail around a corner, first bend it the other way first then use a rubber mallet to shape it around the corner. Sounds freaky but it works . Pat
