Lining holes

Hey folks,

I saw this interesting article puplished on the web about lining any holes with copper tubing, any thought?

I was going to put a PVC pipe in for a mast tube, but it got me thinking about using a copper pipe instead, with a cap soldered on the end of it so the mast wouldn't rub through what would have been epoxy.

What do you folks do for your rudder holes? if its not lined, or lubricated for that matter it would eventually find bare wood.

thanks in advance
