    How do i pull the black rub rails off??

    I've got a 96XP and i have a spot of gel coat (Hopefully just gel coat!!) that i need to fix. It's on the top of there the two hull halves come together on the port side. And to do it right, i need to pull the port side black rub rail. I can see under the lip where it's pop rivited in. But how do i get to the front of the pop rivits to drill them out?? Is there a piece that slides out or something??

    The ski in the pic (not mine) shows the spot i need to fix (Green circle and arrow) and rail i need to remove (Red arrow)

    Thanks!!

    Sit your ski in the sun for a bit and you can then pry it out with a pry bar or flat head screw driver.
