replacing bumper rail on a sailboat

We have been restoring a 50" Dynamique and, in the process removed a wooden rail bumper that covered and protected the deck to hull joint.

Thing is we have reviewed countless websites trying to find a solid rubber rail that will be a good replacement.

The sizes seem to max out about 2 inches and we feel we need a solid 3+ inches with a bit of a return on the extrusion.

Does anyone have any info on sourcing larger sized bumper rails?

Someone had recommended using a large round rubber extrusion used on tugs... could be a little beastly.
