well, it's at least twice as good as a half-capping hull...

Are you talking about capping the hull/deck joint and eliminating the rub rail?

If so, it’s purely cosmetic. Looks cool but a nuisance if you ever tie up alongside other boats, jetties etc. you’d go crazy setting fenders everywhere.

As rak rua said, it looks cool, but with no rubrail a pain around docks. But if it's a cat I would do half cap. That's just the front and the back of the boat. It looks clean, but you still have a rubrail on either side
