Rub rail and side scoop removal

The rub rails are very heavy aluminum extrusions. Surprisingly, there was practically no corrosion underneath the rub rail or in the screw holes. It rained today and when I removed the screws, a lot of water leaked out, so I know that salt water would cause corrosion, so I’m going to seal this up properly.

The rub rails were severely scratched up, so now I can sand them down to a smoother finish.

I wanted to see what the boat looked like without the side scoops. I thought they were purely ornamental, but they did cover up an engine intake. Note sure if this is necessary, though, so I may seal it upIMG_9542IMG_9543IMG_9544IMG_9545IMG_9546
