    My guess is that it is from beaching the boat and the sand has worn the paint off. Without pictures I can't be sure. Bare glass showing is not a big deal but if wood is exposed we have an issue.

    Yesterday is one word. That part of the boat would be called the "chine". You have your soft chine and your hard chine, depends on the angle. A chine is basicly a reverse strake. It would be best to fix it.

    The Cole 20' SS is based off from the bottom of the Tahiti, very good riding boat.

    You think that someone wore the gel off the chine? Could be but I think he's talking about the keel, right down the center of the hull, and designed to, as he tried to say, cut through the water. Jared the chine is the area where the sides of the hull meet the bottom of the hull. Every builder that was his own desiginer has his own thoughts on what worked best, hard, soft, round, back cut, dropped and so on.
    The strakes are the long ridges (for lack of a better word) on the bottom that run from the rear of the boat forward and fade away. They create lift.
