SR5.4 bow protection

Hi all,

In response to Chris's message on my earlier post, apologies for no 'photo of the searider yet... it will follow. The boat has now been sitting outside my barn for three weeks and has shown no sign of losing any pressure from the tubes so I'm pretty pleased with that.

The abrasion protection on the tubes is different to some of the other sr5.4s I've seen. It's the same as the cover 'photo on the "for sales" section of the RIB page on FB, i.e. has a band of lighter grey hypalon of approx. 2" thickness around the rubbing strake area.

I'd like at the least to supplement this with some protection against abrasion from a bow line and have seen several srs with a black rubber line guide / protector. I'd like to get hold of one and affix it to my boat.

Presumably I could just glue this on with some hypalon glue? Could anyone advise me where I could get one from?
