Gents ,
Sorry for delay - was travelling last days ..
First of all thanks for all information / ideas / advice & offers !
Contacted Paul T. and he basically told me from his point of view this stuff is "nice to have" & not "really necessary" if toobs bonded correctly to the hull ..
The cost for after fit would be unreasonably high ..
The hull is equipped with the original stainless steel inserts - that is not the problem .
I am also aware that the rubbing strakes have to be removed for the the pockets for the belts .
Beside of that I forgot ( boat is in Germany - I am in Kiev .. ) that I have 3 pairs of wear pads bonded to the toobs which all have to be removed as well in case of pocket installation ..
I think I will leave everything as it is now . For real emergency cases I still have always the option to use a standard ratchet belt and the original inserts in the hull to secure the toobs if they go off !
Cheers

If you ripped your tubes off, you'll have different problems than continuing the voyage, On my SR it took ages to take off the tubes at the transom, and they weren't even properly fasted
