I agree that docking is a major issue, especially if the wind/currents are "up". I have a full keel. I normally will go bow in rather than stern in, and when docking at most facilities will notify...

I would advise NOT using plywood as a backing plate material for your stanchions. If a leak does develop, you may be depending on mush to hold your stanchions in place.

Boot Top is blistered Awlgrip/Imron

Our new old boat came with a blistered boot top. It is either Awlgrip or Imron. What is the best way to resolve the problem?
Thanks.
