Author Topic:   Rub Rail Replacement and filling holes, any tips?

I just purchase a new rub rail from Whaler for my Montauk. It is the new style of rub rail used on the newer Montauks. I have read the reference section on replacing the rub rail. It looks like that the rub rail has been replaced a few times on this boat. There are alot more holes than the ones that the screws came out of (2 holes for every one that a screw came out of). I have been filling and sanding holes with a generic boat bondo material (white resin and hardener). After filling and sanding all of the holes, I plan to spray new gel coat.
Is there anything else I need to do?
Will the screws hold good in the Boat Patch Material?
Should I reinforce the rub rail section with a little strip of fiberglass cloth?
The rub rail kit came with caulk, when, where and how do you apply the caulk to the rub rail?

Thanks,
Carl
