Rub rail

I am thinking of adding a rubrail to my boat (after considering a cost of replacing toerail cap teak or fixing topside scratches I'd like something else to hit the pilings).

One thing I'd like to avoid is drilling many holes in the hull. I was thinking of something like S2 rail which is basically a PVC/vinyl extrusion glued to the hull. As an advantage, it would fall off in 10 years or so for easy replacement

Anyone knows where something like that can be found? All I get in searches is Taco marine stuff which seems to be aluminum or steel of various shapes with vinyl inserts.

You might look into auto trim. I've seen it in bulk rolls. Differant sizes for all kinds of applications.

I actually got an email from Tiara and they pointed me in a direction of original manufacturer. Gotta look at S2 in my marina to check what kind of a trim they use.

So, what about using glue or sealant to install the trim? Can this be done? What would be an appropriate material? 5200 sounds too permanent

I know for the auto trim there is trim adhesive. 101 should do well also.

Now that sounds like an idea!
