So I guess it was a matter of time. I was moving my boat to a different slip today and gouged the #$@$%#
@ out of the boat next to me with the stainless steel bracket on the swim platform. We were wrestling with getting the last line out from under someone else's line that had been wrapped over mine. Wind started blowing and we couldn't keep it off. Put about a 3 in gouge in his hull. Now the fun part is that the entire boat is covered in a wrap. The guy was there and very cool about the whole thing. I gave him my info and will just have to wait on the quote. There are a couple of other folks that had asked earlier about fenders for the swim platform. Most folks just recommended more crew. I know that isn't always possible so I am thinking about trying to come up with something to use when I have a small crew or am going on by myself. Has anyone ever come up with a good solution for a fender for the swim platform?
I am really thinking I have to be mostly worried with the corners. I was thinking about buying something like this ( http://www.overtons.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?i=87171&from=grid#reviewsInfo) Then putting in two snaps on either side to just snap it onto the swim platform and go around the corners.
