    anyone?
    Can't see it well enuf to be sure, but all I can think of is the rub strip on my last boat.  It had an extruded aluminum base screwed to the outside of the gunwale, and a rubber (plastic ??) insert that snapped into it.  Maybe my little drawing will make sense.  I can even picture a reverse setup where the rubber strip would snap Over the extrusion:

    If you find out let us know, I wouldn't mind replacng my white rub rail with a black one when the time comes.  The amount saved in Magic Erasers would go a long way towards paying for it.

    I believe this product used is imported from a manufacture from Italy. You would need to find a distributor here to buy from for your project. It most likely will be hard to source for one project.

    Acetone and white paper towels are your friend works great
    Call Frank at the factory. He will send you a replacement one in black I'm sure it's not cheap but easy to install on the track.

    Its not cheap and extremely difficult to install.   You will need a heat gun, a rubber mallet and lots of patience

    Thanks for the help fellas...I was able to get a sample from Svendsons marine here in the bay area..believe it or not they stock it so it might be more common then expected...unfortunately the fit is not perfect for the 20 seacraft...looks fairly easy to work with however...I'm used to using Taco rigid vinyl with stainless steel insert...which is moderate in difficulty to install. If you dont have an extra pair of hands when installing stiff rub rail a ladder is your friend. plus the heat gun and rubber mallet.
