Hi all,

Although I do not consider myself a beginner, the question I have is probably one that a beginner should ask.

This minor war wounds that we inflict on our poly yaks, scratches from dragging over reefs and rocks. Would anyone think that an occasional sand papering is a good idea. (probably a bad idea). If one takes to it with a hot soldering iron, or blow torch, good or very very bad idea?

Just fishing for thoughts and opinions, on the matter

Cheers all Andybear :lol:

Hi AB,

I wouldn't take to your hull with a blowtorch :shock: at all... and only a soldering iron if you have a hole to repair.

The scrapes etc. will add a barely noticible amount of extra drag to your boat but there's no benefit in removing hull material.

I'd be very reluctant to attempt to try and take out the rough spots - BUT IF I WAS GOING TO TRY, I think I'd try using an iron over that non stick paper you can put in the oven /bbq hot plate.
