I'm not trying to be a smart ass but genuinely want to make an informed decision as I have quite a lot of small gell coat touch up areas to deal with just now (haven't done any for a couple of years to be honest tho')
Hmmm ....... I was advised not to go all they way back for the reasons stated.
Perhaps there maybe some room to go all the way back if you stuck it on, very precisely along the centreline to give it a try. If your hull does not flare out to form a significant planning pad I would think
that you'd get away with it.
Have you considered asking Avon for advice?? They might have fitted them to other boats before.
