Toe Rail..What's the Purpose...?

OK so it catchs your foot and keeps you from slipping out from under the life line/safety lines...

But I was looking at mine.. substantial aluminum extrusion "thru bolted" every 6" the legnth of the boat...overkill for a "toe catcher"

Gotta be some structural purpose beside hanging dock bumpers...?
