Tube protector

When I had the tubes made and fitted I got them to put a reinforcement patch on there, it's the same as all the other wear patches.

I can make one, but has to be made on the boat so it fits correctly..... Then taken away, trimmed, sanded and painted....

Sounds like impossible, then. Me in The Netherlands and you overthere. Oh well. I'll keep dreaming then.
Such a shame.

i think it looks great, but I'd be just as worried (if not more) about it getting damaged as the gel - afterall scruffy carbon isn't quite as "sexy".

As a cosmetic feature I like it. For a "bash guard", I'd maybe have used some rubber - like you might expect of "commercial" boats that are driven at things.

A bowfender!

In my drinking days, there was a rather plain looking young bird who worked behind the bar at a well known Falmouth night club. One of our lot nicknamed her 'Bowfender'. Mrs M gives me a right dirty look when I spot the girl in town these days and utter, 'Oh look, it's Bowfender'.
