New fender concept
What do people think of a fender that can be readily attachable to the side rail, and remains in place even when it rocks at the dock from waves? This fender concept involves a bracket and a mounting component that can be taken apart for easy storage. Also, this bracket can come with a fender that has the ability to extend for higher docking arrangements so the Seadoo will not slide under the dock. No drilling is required like the new spark model bumper and will most likely retail for less than half the price. It can also be used with a cover without impeding anything.

[QUOTE=EVN81;24ou bought it or a DIY ?[/QUOTE]
I designed this myself. I haven't found anything that protects my machine well when I travel to guest locations.

will this work on the newer s3 hull rub rails?

If it works well for you great. But I'm lazy. Taking it apart for storage and I assume assembling it for use is a PIA. And it looks kinda big for storing. I ain't trying to be an idea wrecker but maybe my input will help you refine it.

I like where you're going with this. I have a larger boat that we keep out on the anchor while playing on the seadoo. Keeping the seadoo and the swim platform from making nasty contact is always a battle. Something like this might help.

Here's the setup for newer models of seadoo and I've shown how little room the fender takes up in the front compartment.

Very cool idea. I agree with tying up to boats, just leaving the bumpers floating in the water they always float away after a few waves since they're too low between the ski and boat.
I think this is a very good solution for that problem, and while docking!

get a pool noodle, cut 2ft sections out of it and then cut one side of the noodle down to the hole. Plop it right over the rail. BAM on the cheap
