I am always very nervous of having very sharp hooks next to very puncturable tubes.......especially in the hands of excitable children!

It's not a huge risk, but one solution is a plank with a large flap of linoleum tacked to it. Roll it up and tuck under a tube when under way and then flip it out over the tube while fishing - keeps the scales off the tube too

I've fished from mine (several times a week if weather allows) for the last 4 years and have never come close to sticking a hook into my tubes, but there can be a tendency to snag the ropes.

I'll get a piccy of my home made holders on the back of my seat for you sometime.

Fish from mine a lot as well and never worried about a hook in the tube.
apart from commercial fendering the only no no is knives with a point on them.
apart from that no bother.
