    buddy Let's go fishin!!

    I want to paint my existing aluminum rub rails. I am just gonna slightly sand them and spray can 'em.

    I was wondering about the new gheenoe rub rails. I am not sure if they are plastic or rubber? In some of the posts I see plastic and then others someone mentioned rubber. Which is it?

    If I fab a larger nose cap for the front of my boat so I can mount my bow mount trolling motor can I just drill through the aluminum rub rails to fasten it down?

    I figured I would make it out of plywood and cover it with several layers of glass
