    Exactly the point. The engineering of a rubrail has no similarity to the requirements for a bow.

    Chippie, Most lumber isn't cut with either vertical grain of flat sawn. In actuality grain orientation isn't a significant factor in bending most species.

    Re: Grand Banks 42, Hull 259

    I suggest switching to 1/2" ply. Create ship lap joints and cleats with an 1 /8" offset to mate the outer surfaces . It will be much easier in the long run with better results.

    By your comment I'm surprised you won't be backing out the rail in it's entirety. Any little piece of debris or curvature will make it stand off otherwise.
