im looking into getting a boat bra or something similar that will help keep the little chips that happen when traveling with the boat. I noticed some little spots that appeared after the travel to the southern reunion this year.
I want to stop or at least help the problem...
anyone use one??

No experience with a boat bra, but I've thought the same for the back end I'm thinking, "Teak Condom" Protect it from the sun etc. when not in use. What do ya' think million dollar idea? TB

Permanent or temporary mud flaps will prevent about 95% of them. There are several types of protection like you are looking for that are available. Overtons once sold one among others. Someone posted a thread back in the spring on these and several were shown.
Here is a link to at least one of them, http://www.trailer-rockguard.com/main.html
and there may be others in this thread, http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=778&highlight=rock+chips

I was thinking the same thing! There used to be one hanging from a Banyon tree at Cypress Gardens a few years ago! I wonder if it's still there?:rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;)

Don't laugh, but a medium coating on the front of the boat with...PAM cooking spray will help deflect all small debris (long haul like to a reunion) and you can catch a car wash when you get to your destination. I used to use this going to Dallas.

Pledge Furniture Polish sprayed thick on a rag and wiped on will work too. Works great on the front of your vehicles, mirrors, if you travel any when the bugs are out. A rainstorm will wash anything just about off if thge rain lasts long enough, but the PAM or any brand of non-stick cooking spray will leave a bigger mess than Pledge if used on the front of a vehicle, cause it leaves a oily residue on the windshield and side glasses. NASCAR race teams use cooking spray on the wire grill coverings and front facia areas to prevent hot tire rubber and other debris from sticking, because it does not contain silicone that will interfere with painting when the cars are repainted/repaired.
