|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.|
|buy an air palmetto. they come with them standard. whre are you located? the local air palmetto dealer is not even a dealer because that would be copying...|
|One Stop Ski Shop |
729 Yampa Street

|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? |
|I have a couple in stock at the store, not sure what sizes I have left though. I will check first thing in the morning when i go in. either post back or shoot me an email. |
|I have a couple customers using Gator Grip as a transom guard. |
get the grip you deserve
Here is the link to the review I did for the "Transom Guard" a while back.
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. |
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.
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.
