    I am rebuilding a 1973 BERTRAM28 and I would like to change its AL rubrails. I found AL rubrails in USA(ie TACO Metals) but all come in straight sections. Please advise where - or how - to properly bent the AL rubrails in way of the 2 aft corners or in way of the bow pulpit.

    Thank you

    The aluminum will bend by hand pressure. attach one end and form it in shape by hand. Things go much smoother will an extra hand.
