Rub Rail Replacement

The rub rail on my 1986 Pearson 28-2 has become brittle over the years and a couple of of feet have chipped off after encountering some overly aggressive docks..

It's clear that it needs replacement at this point, but before undertaking this massive project, I'm wondering if using an aluminum rub rail might be a better option than sticking to the original PVC-like material (which would also mean doing away with the teak toe rail).
As always, your advice would be greatly appreciated.
TIA,

Amir
