I purchased the rigid rubrails from here: http://boatbuildercentral.com/products.php?cat=65 I am having a heck of a time figuring out how to install it. Problem is the plastic is so tightly coiled that it takes alot of force to straighten it out, I doubt the #8 screws speced for this rail will hold it in place as I can barely get it straight. I only have today to get it done. I tried letting it sit on the hot driveway for an hour and it did nothing, I tried a hair dryer which was hot enough to burn my hand, but made virtually no difference to the rail. I bought this type of rail to save some cash over a taco kit, I hope someone has a good solution that will solve my buyers remorse. Please help as I only have till this afternoon to do this.
