Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re-paint of rail and metal insert

May I suggest that you consider just adding reflective tape to the center of the rub rail. It comes in rolls and fits perfectly. Now when I dinghy back to the boat after too many rum zwizzles, I can easily find the boat (and others can avoid it). I also add strips to the boom and mast. You can buy it at most hardware stores.

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re-paint of rail and metal insert
I took the liberty to change the Subject since the discussion is changing its way.
When we re-painted our rail, we bought self adhesive metal strips from a company that makes advertising boards for outside use. The company also made signs for boats.
We have had in place for a year now, and it still looks as new. So there is no reason to mount a stainless steel stripe and drill holes that could cause leakage.
