There is so much discussion here about this and I think its the kind of thing where a picture is worth a 1000 words so thought I would start a thread where people couple post pics of their rails for all to see. I will start with a couple I have saved from the forum over the last few months. Please post what you have.

This boat is a work of art. The owner spent countless hours and making her the Queen of the JC Fleet.
Note the rubber bumper under the travel slip sling always good to block those PCV rail on haul outs & launches.

Have a few from the boat next to me in the shop, a Wasque 32 with molded rails, right at the waterline.

40' Snowball gillnetter
A guy in Alaska does this to boats needing a bit of "help". Says he starts about 2.5" wide at the bow and then increases to about 6" by mid ship. Says it really helps keep the bow up and gains a bit in speed. I'm thinking about doing it on my 40' gillnetter that broaches like crazy in a following sea.

First Team's OEM rocket- again from this site. Old thread herehttp://downeastboatforum.com/downeast-projects-boat-building/installing-lifting-rails-3435.html

Good discussion and more pics. There is so much discussion on this topic stored here. Hard to find though.
