Matt:

In a prior post you mentioned that for the Worlds boats the side rail neoprene was beveled. Can you tell me how that was done? I was thinking of doing it by hand with a dremel and sanding drum, but wanted to check with the pros first to see if there's a better way.

Thanks,
Daniel

What are the advantages of beveling the neoprene?

Under the rail, so the trapeze rope and bungee do not catch on it. You can use a knife.
