I thought I had tied boat up enough but with all the new traffic last weekend the wakes loosened it up and I found the front of my outer toons looking like this from hitting the dock. I’m adding new bumpers to dock soon at the front to prevent this. Any concerns beyond cosmetic at this point?
As you said, just cosmetics. Those areas could be cleaned up pretty well with a flat file followed by a DA sander using increasingly fine emery paper. I would say that at least 90 percent of it could be eliminated.
That is why they put the keel all the way to the bow eye. I had the bow eye ripped off when it was not tied properly and the eye got under the dock. $100 welder repair bill and good as new. If it bothers you clean it up in the fall while it is on a trailer. Enjoy the summer.
