Re: How thick is your hull?

With my luck the hammer would bounce back and hit me in the head.

Good Point- size affects the thickness. We have a Hunter 45 Passage. And we had a diver cut the hole while we were in the water! Luckily, a cork quickly closed it until we had the transducer put in. I must admit it made me nervous-it holds all I own!

Re: How thick is your hull?

As one who has peeled hundreds of boats in the last 15 years its hard to put a number or make on a certain boat. When a 70 year old man can defect the hull below the waterline in the aft sections by pushing the gel planner against it, it's thin. Walk thrrough the boatyard and take a look at the number of boats on the hill that have stands depressing their hulls. Every owner ask "do I need to reglass what you take off". Depends. Each boat is different and what you plan on doing with it. Phil Turner

It was a proper hammer .

That was removing the rubbing strake - through bolted (1/2 inch bolts - although many somewhat less!), nuts long since "welded" on (with rust ), hammer was used after the drilling out approach, sometimes that went neatly - sometimes not ........sometimes a gentle tap sent the remnants flying through ....sometimes a lot more effort required. and occassionaly a very pissed off DOJ approach .

Re: How thick is your hull?
