I kind of like the aluminum, but it's got 27 years of rough wear.
I'd like to keep the same look.
I haven't even investigated getting the same rail yet. I know TACO is a common aluminum line. Haven't asked JO and PEPE yet as to what to use.

I used the 20' peices when I did mine. Going around the bow I started about 3-4' back then came up to the bow. Use a heat gun (you can rent one from Home Depot). 2 people can do a boat in a couple hours.

Did a little searching this morning, and found this

Also found out this stuff is pretty damn expensive...
Glad my boat is only 24/7

They recommend drilling new holes for the rubrail. My hull and deck are glassed together, and inside you can see where the screws have been glassed over. Anybody think I'd have a problem using the same holes with some 5200 'tipped' on the screws??

Any time you try and use old holes with new material you run the risk of things not matching up...no matter what your installing. Do you think your going to go with aluminum? If so let me know how you make out with the radius on the transom. I want to use stainless or aluminum but not sure how to get that bend along the transom on the Corsa. I know the 24 Pantera also has this bend.
