S&G: Coaming Question--CLC

Two questions: I have an old CLC North Bay whose cockpit is so small I can barely get into the boat. On the inside edge of the coaming, at 10 and 2, are those rounded "hips" that keep me from getting both legs in at once. Is there any good reason not to grind those down so that the coaming is even all the way around? I'm thinking that the spray skirt would fit the same, since it's obviously on the outside edge.

Also, does anyone sell a metal protective cap that fits over the tip of the bow?

Thanks.
