It might surprise you to learn that I had thought of that, however, I like to keep my bottom clean and free from damage!

My thanks to those that made intelligent suggestions!

I've been thinking about this. I launch at Eastney onto a shingle beach/rough concrete slipway and it would make sense to protect the gelcoat in some way.

I've thought of applying a strip of glass-fibre "Scotch" tape, possibly practical, but not cosmetic. Is there a better solution (web links welcome) - and what effect might it have on performance.

No dry suits keep you dry, hence the name ‘dry suit’
as to looking goofy, wasn’t he a dog do dogs in the US wear dry suits Des
