Either way, forget that....I did mine and it's easy.
Get the longest piece of 5/4 cca decking you can get (12') and rip the rounded edge off with a table saw...Do the other side and you have 2....Islip hardware has the nylon spacers and bump up the gauge of stainless screws by one to ensure a solid bite.
I have the leftover cca board if you want to peel off a few from it, I just liked the idea of the rounded edge.

not sure if they're still building boats. Last time I was there was a couple years ago and he wasn't working on anything current (shop behind the house). You might want to also consider something different - if you go to home depot, the sell those plastic coated wire shelves in different sizes. They make great grass racks with zip ties.
