[Amel Yacht Owners] Rub rail rubber gutter

Jean-Pierre Germain <jgermain@...>

Hi Mike,

It has not shrunk... It is meant that way to let the water exit below the gutter, clear of the hull line.. No lines on your hull.

The exit point is under the gutter about 30 cms forward of the "shrink hole". Check the hole for free flow; I use my hose pointed inside the gutter from the bottom

What has been the relative success rate in removing and reinstalling the rubber gutter on the top of the rub rail.  Do they lose their elasticity and become too stiff to reinstall. And at what age was it when this was successfully or unsuccessfully done. Our 15 year old gutter has shrunk about an inch (at the stern). We would like to remove it to paint the rub rail, and then reinstall. Perhaps an impossible mission.
