The rub rails together should keep the corner from being hit if the object bridges across both rubrails, it will still be possible for damage on the corner but setting ice chests or tackle boxes or whatever else should eliminate unless someone slams it down carelessly. 

I can take a pic tomorrow.

... Or most importantly, you can haul shrimp and crab pots in over the rail without creating a 'rope groove'!  :D  I like your use of the rubrail better than the UHMW that I've seen screwed onto some sheer decks.

Great Idea, never thought of that. I have seen guys recess say a 1/2" diameter stainless rod into the tops of the sheer leaving the top half exposed above the gunnel. By putting these 2-3 inches apart maybe 24" long in the right place would help protect the finish from sliding things like ice chest over the top. Of course this dose not work if you installed the cockpit coming like the plans call for. I'm thinking I may do a single on my top of my coming pretty much full length. I use the Scotty single wheel crab pot puller, it actually works real well. When I first saw it I didn't think it would last but its really held up well. Saves from the rope damaging the outside corner gunnel to side joint.

Scotty puller would be too much work for this old guy, shrimp pots at 250-300ft and crag pots sometimes down to 200ft. I think I will stick with a electric puller and davit. 

I painted the dash , aft cabin exterior bulkhead, inner gunnels and the face of the livewell with Alexseal 501.  I used the roll additive which works amazing, cool thing is the white I used is almost a dead match to my exterior paint.
My first coat I had some runs a lot of fiber from the roller cover even though I wrapped tape around it to pull off the loose fibers.  I switched to Wooster Pro foam and will never go back to the other, your results may vary.

It takes 3 days to apply 3 coats but what the heck.  Only a couple pics for now, this is coat #2 below.

Looks great, I am gonna have to try some of those rollers. I bought a bunch of the mohair ones, they work pretty well but I am always looking for something better. It took me a lot of practice before I was able to do a good section without runs, yours looks great.

These foam rollers https://www.amazon.com/Wooster-Brush-RR308-4-1-2-Pack-2-Inch/dp/B002YCA9BM/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=WOOSTER+BRUSH+HIGH+DENSITY+FOAM+ROLLER&qid=1632172995&sr=8-2

I not 100% sold on their use, maybe in some areas the foam edge is nice but the mohair (if you can get all of the lint out) works quite well and I think it is easier to get an even coat as it is hard to tell with the foam.  Rolling takes practice for sure.
