I brought my Shearwater 17 inside to sand and touch up the varnish this winter. In looking it over I realized that the bow and stern tips had been bashed down to the wood. This is one pointy boat! There are 3 layers of glass there, but it didn't seem to help. I'm thinking of trimming the ends down a half inch therefore blunting it a bit. Then I'll have to sand the adjoining areas down to glass and reglass the tips.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Best practice? Best weight of glass?
