Thanks guys, I tried a y-bllock but didn't fit the contour of my squirt. maybe I'll try a rub rail in that area just hate to mess up the contour of the boat just for that.

it needs more tests before success. And I think the outside is a little bit oversize.

Just read through all these posts, what an amazing paint job and decking! The transom protector idea was a good tip I had not picked up on that yet, and also the steering system stackup is a good heads up item for the future. Thanks for sharing your build!

And for the rubber, maybe wrap the roller in some black crafting felt, or Terry cloth towel and keep it in place with two zip ties? Might not look too fancy but it will stop the rubber from grinding into the paint job.

Happy boating!

So I ended up getting a SS plate to attach to the bow to protect when trailering. It's not a perfect fit but pretty close after some manipulation. I think it actually looks pretty good and it works really well when trailering.
