Most rubrails are made by Taco Metals. I've done one section about 20' long and it was a pain in the a$$.

Not so bad. Through bolted on your boat, so interior and parts of the cabin need to be removed for access. Get help. Straight isn't hard, nice clean bends take practice.

Or a week

By far the biggest chore is getting access to the inside of the rub rail.

You can do it. I've done harder things like one time in college I had to push an egg across the floor, but thats another story...
