dock edge used on swim platform

I used dock edging to finish my homemade swim platform. I looked at the material that Parks suggested and considered it seriously but the edge of my platform was almost 3 1/2" tall and I wanted to finish of the raw aluminum flat bar stock edge as well as hide the raw edge of the decking. I bought mine from Merco Marine - a supplier of dock building parts and stuff It is fastened with aluminum pop rivets . The dock edging did not willingly lay well in the corners that is where you see the close spaced rivets on the top edge of the corners. It is four seasons old and doing very well.
