Good afternoon,

I've noticed in a couple of places where a bump rail should be, there is some paint scuffed off through to primer. Most of this has been from rubbing a bit over time on PVC covered piles in our slip. There's not a lot of clearance between her beam and the piles and if the water level changes a bit, she can get just close enough to rub. A couple others I'll attribute to gentle learning curve in docking...all small and cosmetic. We plan on just getting them touched up this winter. However, besides just not bumping her into the piles, are there any preventative measures anyone has heard of? What I was kind of thinking was perhaps there is a more durable paint that I can apply to just the edge as kind of a more subtle bump rail. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?
