Old School, Good stuff

By Foredeck Guy

About Me Advanced

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Attractive
  • Reliable

Cons

  • Time Consuming To Install

Best Uses

  • Dingy Launch Skids
  • Rigid Tenders

Comments about Premium Gunnel Guards:

This makes the rail of a rigid dingy, or small whaler easier on the boats it comes along side of. The synthetic canvas cover is also good for using on the tops of dock floats instead of a roller to ease a dingy out of the water. A little more friction than a roller, but doesn't need lubrication!

It does take lots of screws to attach.

Perfect for a Dyer [*]

    Comments about Gunnel Guards:

    Just purchased and installed a 20' piece of this on the gunwale of my Dyer "[*]" dinghy (7'-11" length). I attached it using 100 #6 self-tapping 1/2 inch stainless steel screws as recommended by Dyer. It fit perfectly with the two ends meeting at the center of the stern. I can't comment on durability yet but it looks nice and looks like it'll be a perfect gunwale guard for a light rigid dinghy. At [$] for 20 feet of material the price couldn't be beat.

          Comments about Gunnel Guards:

          When I built my little plywood and epoxy dinghy I didn't want to spend the[$] for a proper rubrail and my sailboat suffered from it. After a year I found this product on sale and installed it and my sailboat is now happy again. My advice, spend the money up front and avoid the scratches and paint streaks. This stuff ought to last forever.
