I'm considering a purchase of a 36-2 from 1986. One feature of this example is an aluminum toe-rail, without the usual plastic moulding protecting the joint. See attached pics. Note that the transom has retained the standard plastic moulding. Was this a factory mod performed on some hulls or is it a mod likely made afterwards? If the later, I'm asking anyone who's familiar with the deck-hull geometry to comment. It's hard to tell exactly but it looks like the bolts are all visible on the underside of the toerail. I'd like to see it for myself but the COVID19 situation prevents me from doing my own investigation. The owner thinks this is the normal configuration. Appreciate any advice.
