If I understand correctly you are using the brass tube sections as an internal bearing surface for the sliding CF tube. Sand blasting the OD of the brass would probably give it enough bite but this may be better and easier. You mentioned trying West System products. Did you know that West makes a carbon/graphite filler commonly used to restore rudder post bearings? You could eliminate the brass all together and use a proven bearing surface. I assume if you have West you are near the coast. SailDesign probably knows what I am talking about.
