Looking for some advice on how to the rub strip from my Keith Steele boat. It looks to be nailed on. It is coated with a lot of paint so I dont know if I should expect to encounter screws as well. I briefly tried to tap a screwdriver behind the rub strip to pry it but the wood on this boat is so, so dry that I was sure I would damage it badly if I forced it. Any thoughts?

When you get around to removing the chine logs and transom trim, etc.  This video will help you get the screws out.  Louis Sauzedde is a real oldtime shipwright and has a lot of videos out there worth looking at. Here's one on a simple method of removing screws in planks.


Have fun,


Interesting video. I liked the tips for the screw removal. Thanks.
