Product Overview

Long lasting protection with a traditional look.

Taylor Made premium gunnel guards are great to protect boat hulls from damaged caused by hard surfaces and edges: including small docks, swim platforms, dinghy gunnels, etc. They are ideal for club tenders that frequently raft up to other boats. A polyester cover protects closed cell foam help repel moisture and prevent rot. The combination of these two materials provides a tougher, longer lasting flexible cushion that will stand up to the marine environment. The 1/2 round profile works best on flat surfaces while the 3/4 round is ideal for gunnels and other 90° edges. #6 x 1/2" stainless steel fasteners and stainless steel finish washers (sold separately) are recommended for installation and should be used every 3-4". For a long lasting gunnel guard with a traditional look, chose Taylor Made premium Gunnel Guard.
