Cove Trimming Tool

John Jacques, building a very modified 43′ trimaran showed us the tool he uses. I can’t wait to try it. He runs the rotary wire brush along the coves to smooth them out.

  1. Not hard to get good results but it does take a little practise to get the feel for shaping evenly depending on how hard the cove is, the newness of the rotary wire brush and how hard you push.

  2. It depends on the hand experience. I take a media (sand, soda etc) blaster any day over a rotating wire brush. Again hand eye coordination and materials are the key.
