PLAY THE VIDEO TO SEE THE SIMPLE STEPS

NEEDED:

  • Power drill
  • Carpenter's wood panel saw or electric bread knife
  • 4" or 6" Angle Grinder or planer
  • 1 x FINE flap disc for 4" / 6" angle grinder/sander (smooth/wear the disc down on concrete first).
  • Cartridge glue gun
  • 2-4 x cartridges of Liquid Nails Original (green label) - construction adhesive.
  • 1 x 200g tub of Selly's Kwik Grip Gel Vertical, construction adhesive (if you'll be shaping your bow or  or gluing transom foam to Collar). We'd post it to you, but it's considered too hazardous.

HERE'S THE FIVE STEPS

Step 1.

Mark & drill your boat

  • Mark fixing points every 300mm inside your hull, using your supplied template as a guide.
  • Drill where you've designated the screws to fix.

Step 2.

Strap Collar to your boat and mark the Collar

  • Strap the Collar into the correct position.
  • Mark the Collar by poking it with a screw through the fixing holes (indicates where the internal plate needs to go).

Step 3.

Remove Collar & hammer in plates

  • Remove Collar from your boat and place it upside down on the ground.
  • Line up plates above your "poked" marks and hammer them in alongside the inner hard layer.

Step 4.

Glue the plates inside the Collar

  • Squeeze 2-3 pumps of Liquid Nails into the plate pockets.
  • Set aside in the shade and allow to dry for 4 - 5 days.

Step 5.

Strap Collar to boat and fix

  • Strap the Collar to the side of your boat again, in the same position as last time.
  • Apply Tef Gel to the screw tips and under the dome washers for non-corrosive and water-tight properties.
  • Fix the Collar to your boat by drilling the screws into the plates inside your Collar, from the inside of your hull. Go and enjoy!
