Tube Reinforcement post production

Has anyone had tube reinforcement bonded on after the tubes were made? Our boat is getting a bit scuffed in some areas and I was wondering about getting some 100mm flat straking bonded on above and below the rubbing strake.

Simon, we added some extra material to the tops of the tubes on our Ribcraft, where our divers sit. Paul Tilley, a member on here, supplied the material & glue for our needs at a very good price! I would give him a message or call him?
