Do any of you have pictures of your transom lockers with items stored? Have you added any hooks (for dock line, power cords, hoses)? or bins to keep things neat? It seems like an area that things just get thrown in.

    Also fender storage, I'm thinking about getting stainless bow rail holders to keep them out of the way but ready for use.

    I thinking this might work for the fenders at the bow. Minimal blockage of view and easy to access when needed (a fender grip is used). I might use a Velcro strap for the forward side of the fender to the rail to keep it secure. As for the stern fenders, I can store them upright and out of the way in the transom locker.

    I keep my bow fenders like you have it. I also have the double holder on my bow rail but it's missing a couple screws so I don't use it. I should use it though since they look really good.

    I store all of my fenders in the locker. I have thought about getting the bow rail fender holders, but I am concerned about loosing sight lines. Maybe I am overthinking it.

    I really like the look of the bow rail holders but I’m also afraid of loosing sight line. You can mock up the fenders on the rail and see how you like it. I don’t think I will be happy with them in front.

    I also think I will like not having to drag fenders from the bow to the stern.

    Yea, for me that’s how it was. But now with two daughters, a 2 1/2 year old and a 9 month old she won’t be able to help as much.

    I have 10 fenders (that's a lot) if I didn't put 4 of them on the bow rails I would have to use them as pillows as for i would run out of storage space. M.T did  everything in excess. The bow bumber holders Are not even noticed while behind the helm. They are easy access and they look good. And if mounted correctly they do not touch the gelcoat. Every boat I have owned I have added this type of bumper holder.

    @bry1429 , they look great on your boat. If you look at my bow rail, the best spot for them to fit would be all the way on the forward upright rails, otherwise the deck gets in the way. They would be blocking most of my forward vision through the bow rail.

    I keep 3 of the 4 on my bow rail on the 342 the 4th in between the the bimini pole and  back seat. 4 towels from the dollar store have lasted 3 years now around the fender. The admiral just stuffs them between the rail and deck and they stay there in in rough water. My rail a little different then yours.

    @bry1429 - Did you have the windshield cover made or was that also @Michael T ? I'm thinking about getting one made.

    I purchased directly from Ameritex,  they have all the Rinker templates. Prices aren't bad. You Just have to put some snaps on to match up with your boat, really easy install.
     If you do not see your year and model in the drop down menu call them For pricing
