Hi All, Now that my boat has been used for three seasons I decided to bring it home and see what I could do to make sure the bottom was smooth. I didn't try turning it over due to a lack of manpower but I was able to fashion a two by four with a glove on one end to hold the boat up off the trailer. I put the glove end under the rail a little ahead of the jib car and set the other end of the board on a rubber mat. With this contraption I was able to lift the boat about six inches off of one bunk so I could get in there and clean. Since my fiberglass is still fairly new I didn't have to do much more than buff it but when I got to the flat bottomed part where the hull sits on the trailer bunks I noticed I'm getting a deformation of the hull. My questions are: Is this normal or should I be trying to fair up the hull somehow? If this is not normal what can I do to prevent it? My bunks are fairly long since my trailer is made for a 16er so I thought that I was lightly loaded. Lastly, what tips do you racers out there have for hull prep?
