1. Glue - 1 litre from Henshaws £12.75 (Still got loads left and also made far too much and wasted quite a lot)
2. Rubbing Strake - I just restuck down the old one at the back, I bought a metre from Henshaws for the Fairlead this cost me 14.61 and Ive still got most of it left over.
3. Preperation materials - 2" Sanding drum (only used 1) £2.50, Seam Roller £2.50 from Local hardware store. 4 cheap 1" paintbrushes £7.50 and old baby feed bottles for mixing glue in and a baby syringe for measuring activator. If you have a dremel or can borrow one I used 1 small sanding drum (3/8") and one larger one (1/2") to get in the tight spaces. Finally some Acetone for degreasing used about 250ml.
4. Time - About 2 hours of prep and the first coat of glue on day 1, On day 2 just 20 mins for another coat of glue in the morning and then later in the day about 1 hour for the final coat of glue then stick on the strake (I did each piece individually) So in total about three and a half hours.
Having done this for the first time I could easily do it in much less time now I know what to expect.
