I would roll out gumpaste into a long thin snake and measure out the length of the railing you want on your boat with a piece of yarn ...form the shape of the railing and let dry completely on wax paper...this would be your V shaped rail I am assuming that goes around the front of a sea ray boat...for all of the vertical rails holding up the main rail I would use fondant covered toothpicks stick into the cake then at the tops place a dot of royal icing then lay your main rail on top...of course it is going to have to be properly measured and might take some time...hope that helped!
