I wish to make some major renovation to my Nautiraid grand raid exp 500 II.

I want the replace the stranding band (bande d'├ęchouage). How should I proceed to remove the old one ?
Any suggestion ?

I don't know what that is. Is it part of the hull, or the frame?

A bit more than a WAG: Keel strip(s)?

Removal depends on what your hull material is (hypalon I assume?) and how they are attached (glued or vulcanized?).

The keel strip I'm talking about is a long band of hypalon (about 10cm large) in the middle of the bottom of the kayak going from one end the the other.
I suppose it's glued.
