Bending new rub rail

Last fall during the movement of a quick cold front the neighbor's Catalina broke loose and smacked into the aft port side of my 30. Fortunately all that was damaged was the hard plastic rub rail. Ironically it is the same section that was damaged and replaced during Hurricane Hugo in CHS some years ago. I purchased a new length from Rudi at D&R and just now finding time to install. Any suggestions on heating this stuff for a nice bend around the transom?

Separate subject... my jib when trimmed comes back a little past mast and must be cut such that the sheet never rides on the safety line.

Love this old boat... in three years family has spent at least 75 nights on it and countless hours sailing. Yes maintenance about the same number of hours but I sort of enjoy that.

I'd not be having sails cut to clear life lines. You can put the sheets outside the lifelines until you get more able or comfortable with close hauling the jib
Weren't the rub rail corners special made? I guess a heat gun would be my choice if I were to try the bend.

Re: Bending new rub rail

So when I bought the boat it came with the head sail. Did not cut anything. I read the section in the Annapolis Book of Seamanship regarding head sails and it was not clear to me exactly what I have.

The boat has a nice roller furling. The sail seems to be cut such that the lifeline is not an issue.

The rubrail appears continuous around the boat except the area damaged during the storm. That one section I will replace. Guess I will borrow a heat gun from an electrical acquaintance.

Thanks

Re: Bending new rub rail

I ended up notching the rub rail that I got from D&R marine and bent it the remaining amount in the garage using the wife's hair dryer. This after careful measurement and had to trim a bit when at boat. Turned out good.
