Ok guys, i need help with a decision here, my 19' tahiti came with the bow rails. I took them off when i was doing some colorsanding last season and have left them off since. Currently they are in my garage getting in the way all the time, so what do I do? A part of me likes them off for a couple of reasons. One, it gives the boat a cleaner look, Two, from a safety standpoint i dont have to worry about my 5yo or anyone catching their foot on one and breaking it. I had a friend years ago that jumped off the family boat and caught his foot under the rail, he ended up breaking his ankle. SO on the other hand, the rails make it easier to grab the boat as well as hang bumpers etc. Also the holes are all still there from the mounting brackets........................ So ....Rails or NO rails?
