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
gel coat (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.
Make it even more
convenient by purchasing
a Flexible and Semi-Rigid
Rub Rail Kit complete with
everything you'll need in
an easy to carry box.
REMOVAL OF OLD RUB RAIL & HULL PREPARATION
CAUTION
If your rub rail comes
coiled, stand in the
center of the coil when
cutting the straps so it
unwinds away from you.
Be prepared for quick
movement of the coil.
