I'd try a 3M adhesive eraser wheel.  



If you end up with exposed fasteners, think about barrel nuts.

If I read it right, someone is selling 24 cans of the stuff on Ebay for $49.


In Topic: painting on top of raw epoxy

Your odds of success will be improved if the epoxy is well cured (a warm week, anyway), washed thoroughly and sanded well.

I'd do those and one coat of alkyd primer.

Something like that.  I'm wondering how that boat ended up with a flat hull/deck joint at the end.  Mine is rounded. Would make it a lot easier to mount a bow roller if mine were like that but I wouldn't want to grind through the joint.

That pic is of the original fitting reinstalled on a highly modified boat.  http://www.triton381.com/


I think you could mount a bow roller beside the bow fitting with a spacer pad under it.

This is on an Alberg 35.

If it looks like this, I wouldn't mess with it.
