This year my hull got some bad scratches. I am thinking of a complete refurb. Of course i read the refurb thread of ribraff already
I have no problem to work with topcoat, but my main concern are the tubes. If possible i would like to leave them on the hull. Is it possible to leave them there? Since the scrathces are within the gelcoat, i don't have to sand it down to the glass. Just some fairing on the big ones at the stern i hope? Should i worry about the dust on the tubes (no glass)? OK, i can't flip the hull. But removing and glueing the tubes again isn't a task i could manage by myself. Would be great if i could sand, spray and polish it with tubes attached...??
