Could you provide some photos of the installed rub rails at your SM?
Thanks so much

We had great success with installing the Taco Marine V11-0809 Flexible Rub Rail. Comes in 50’ length for $185. Fits in the groove in the fiberglass rubrail. Pictures attached (if this works).

I'm thinking about putting a metal or rubber extrusion on the center part of the rub rail to keep the red part off of dock pilings.
Has anyone looked at this and what product did you use?
It seems like even with a perfect docking maneuver the marina crew insists on dragging us tight to the piling before we can position a fender. I have fenderboards that take two or three fenders but they are tough to pre-position. I'm thinking of rigging the fenderboards so there is a board keyed on top of the liferail so you only have to move the one thing (instead of two lines for the fenderboard and three fenders).
