I will be the first to admit, I missed the point of the thread. Sorry.

Did the rails knock down the spray enough to justify the expense and trouble of installing them?

Last weekend we were tied up to a fuel dock in a small shrimp town in our 31' Mainship Sedan Bridge. It was really calm but when we went to bed in the V birth, we heard what sounded like very large bubbles. It was actually kind of annoying just because it almost made you laugh. Funny noise. The next morning when it was light out, i went outside and saw that it was just the way the very small ripples in the water were catching the chine. That's the only time we've heard it. Other than that, we don't mind the noises.
