rubbing stroke

Hi,

Who can tell me what type of rubbing stroke i should use on my Avon SR 5,4 and more important how to get the old one off.
I'd like to put on a new black one and then double on the sides and triple on the nose.

I'm to looking for some material to put on top of the tubes to step on when stepping abourd.
its a kind of floormat? If anybody knows?

im all ears

UI guess it depensds what your main mooring place is. The "D" section ones are good for flat sides (e.g if you are alongsiode a ship a lot) as they hold the rest of the toobs well clear. "Flat" is better for marinas, because you will find the "D" section ones on an SR will be just below the pontoon deck as you come alongside, and will catch as you strep out and the hull floats a bit higher.

As for the triple, Mine has (had, as half of it has fallen off) a "D" with a"flat either side along the whiole length. Pic is the first one on the "show us your humber" thread in the "pics" section, but note lengths of it have fallen off (the boat is 27 YO!) .

Walking panels - Mine just had a big patch of Hypalon glued to the top of the toobs. Also had 4 strips of "ribbed, flat" rubbing strake neatr the A- frame as a step point, which donlt show up too well on the pic.

There are many ways of doing this!

Mollers and Downhilldai both have Seariders and seem the sort to know all about rubbing strokes, they are away together at the moment but I'm sure will have some input when they get back
