Hi DT, Surely you've got a tender or something rubber on board to qualify.
Just tie a load of fenders around your gunwales and tell everyone it a new concept, you should be ok, but don't tell anyone I told you.

I was thinking of getting some kids armbands and sticking them to the hull.

Well, it's a start.

Don't worry DT, I'm hated on here as well. I used to have a yacht but now I've got a jet ski. However, it's only a matter of time before they all come round to my way of thinking.
