Where do you buy the "transom guard"? The premade plastic one that screws into your swimdeck. The probability of me making my own is becoming very unlikely.

Here's a pic of my swimstep and transom guard. What a great investment!

Somebody on wakeworld told me to get high density something-or-rather plastic as it will not absorb any water. Cost was under 10.00 and works awesome.

I did something similar to Ty, just get a 1"x1" strip of oak at Home Depot. It's very easy to screw it in from the bottom, again, cost is less than $10. When it becomes unsightly, replace it. Took me about 10 minutes to attach to my swim deck.

That's one well oiled swim deck. What do you use on it?

eb,
Here is the link to the review I did for the "Transom Guard" a while back.

TY,
I think that might have been me?
Was it UHMW (Ultra High Molecular Weight) Plastic. Then again, could have been someone else I mentioned this too?!?!?!?!?

I will be very disapointed if you end up buying one. I have seen all the kick butt home made stuff on your boat and all the rigging you have done. You should be able to find a strip of plastic at the hardware store. Another idea is to go to the phone book and look under plastics and I bet they have some scrap pieces that would work perfect and probably for free. You would not believe the little hole in the wall places I have found around town to find parts for my underwater camcorder housing I am building. From the pvc to the o-rings. I started the construction of the thing today and so far it is going smooooothhhh. Should be done end of the week once my lcd monitor comes in.

I like the gator grip from Wake Junky, get the color that matches your boat and you are set.

kevin,
yes it was you and thank you. works like a champ.
I picked up just some teak oil at the local lumber shop. I asked for the best they had.

Andy,
Alright I'll make one, I just have a hole burning in my pocket from all the stuff I sold on ebay! What should I buy instead?
P.S. I am a big fan of Gator Grip and have it all over the deck of my boat, I just want something different for a transom guard.

Earlier this summer I thought I saw a post about some teak transom guards. The guy used brass screws to attach a piece of teak to the swim platform.

WakeJunky- Is the canvas you got at GPS in Roseville working out for you?

Just for the record,
I didn't pay for the Transom Guard I installed on my boat.

Ben Beckes (formely of NoFlex, Inc) made me a deal; do the review, be honest and get the word out. I did back when I did it, and got free product to boot!!!

If I did it today, I would have just gotten some plastic from "My Guy" and done it up.
