Removing toe rail

I have a Paceship 23K with a slotted aluminum toe rail. For the past year plus I have been replacing sections of the core.
I intend to paint the deck once all the work is finished .
The question I have is- is it necessary to remove the toe rails prior to painting?
I am somewhat reluctant to as there are a number of bolts that are very difficult to reach and I am not as limber as I once was.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks
Bruce

Re: Removing toe rail

No, in fact I wouldnt recommend removing those rails at all. Huge amount of work for sure.

Re: Removing toe rail

I painted our deck with toe rails in place. No particular difficulty in that, just careful masking. And I'd agree that removal would be a horrible job, and might well exacerbate any tendency for hull to deck joint leaks.

Re: Removing toe rail

Thank you all. I do not think at this time they are leaking. Probably will not know until I finish recoring.
Actually the thought of getting stuck in a lazerette makes me want to wait and see.
So I will continue on the present problems.
Thanks again.
Bruce
