    On a quest for best PWC Fender

    After getting a nasty chip from a dock (Anyone know of a touchup paint?). I've decided to try both the PWC fenders I could find, the gunwell clip and the suction cup. The suction cup ones are pretty useless , but the gunwell clip kinda seem to have potential. It seems best to use the fender with a harbor fright bungee and just trash the S hook it comes with. The Ultra 300 gunwell isn't really the correct size for hooks. I cadded a bracket the gunwell and it seems to work great, ill test it this weekend and get back to everyone.

ID:	336636 On the bottom left you can see a little protrusion, that is going to get a strip of padding and rest on the hull to guarantee the clips don't slip.

    I use the same ones you have for my RXP-X and they work fairly good.

    IMO - I think they all kinda suck.

    If I am "solo" - I use 2 ropes. I tie one to the LH Dock and the other to the RH Dock - with the ski floating somewhere "in-between".

    I then go park my vehicle and come back.

    I wish I could do that, the dock I dock to is parallel to the shore with the other side facing the bay. You can only tie up on 1 side.

    yep just started using the suction cups ,their doing the job as I now launch at the mouth of the bay ,very rough for a launch area..
    Ed the two rope idea is good and giving it some slack to float out But where I tie down to the cleats and walk back to park your car the tide/ current could send it rockin back into the dock ...

    I guess it depends how calm it is but whatever works for you
