    Your rub rail is there to hide the seam between the hull and the deck.

    Capped is great looking. Just need to be careful around docks and other boats so as not to rub on them. Thinking of doing mine when I get around to painting it.

    the cost to repair a RR might be pennies to the cost of a cap repair, but if you take as good of car of your boat as your car, maybe you wouldn't be hitting docks???? I dont know, Just throwin' it out there.
    everyone I hang out with seems to take better care of their boat rather even their tow vehicles! lol
    ...and its not that much work!??

    Pretty tough to ever match or touch up the "flake" I suspect your boat (like mine) was originally produced without rail Tom

    Boats are layed up in 2 pieces. The seam is where the boats halfs come together. A cap job (capping) bonds the two halfs eliminating the seam.
