merc2dogs is on a distinguished road
On a couple of boats I've used the soft foam pipe insulation tubes sold at hardware stores. It's a closed cell foam, normally shiny grey or black, but I've seen it in white. Not an elegant solution, but works well and softens the edge.
It works especially well when there is a fairly large gap, or a wildly inconsistant one.
