    Splash guard for GPR?

    Who has a splash guard on their ski? Are they any good?

    Have to get new Hydro Turfs and was thinking about a splash guard since my molding at the front hangs down a little. The holes for the molding have to be reworked since the haul is a little bit damaged at the front so I thought that might cover up the repair a little bit.
    Does anybody know if the hydro turf mats from IR come with the adhesive allrady on?

    I would get the jet trim one. The hydro turf one rips easily at the sides because of the material. Even with muliple oversized washers. I read somewhere it scrubs speed. SO if you are not doing high speed runs it works great. I would think no more than .2-.5 mph.

    I have a Jet Trim splash guard. I like it. It works good, keeps a lot of the spray out of my face so I can see the bouys.

    Hydro turf and jet trim use the same material.

    If the light mist/splash annoys you like it does to me, get the jet trim splash guard - large. Order it through parkeryamaha.com. 29.99 plus I think 3.00 for large. Also get the hydroturf without the adhesive tape. Go spend the extra time and money and use contact cement. They will hold up for life.......well a lot longer than the adhesive.

    Hope this helps.

    Been using the JT for years and it's never deformed. Use combo of stainless bolts/washers and rivets to attach it to the hull and you'll never have a problem.
