REMOVAL OF OLD RUB RAIL &
HULL PREPARATION
1. Remove the end caps
2. Remove the insert and the stiffening strip
if there is one
3. Remove the screws or rivets that attach the
rub rail to the hull. If the rub rail is fastened
with pop rivets, drill out the rivet head and
push the shaft in, to prevent rattling
4. Remove the rub rail
5. Use a putty knife to scrape off any old sealant,
being careful not to scratch the gelcoat (it is
unnecessary to remove
all
the old sealant, just
the excess)
6. Fill all holes with sealant/3M 5200 (you will be
drilling new holes for the new rub rail)
7. Let the sealant cure according to the
manufacturers suggestions
