For the transom saver. Hydroturf.com/ You can buy it in sheets and has a good color selection. I used Hydro-Turf, PWC + Boating 40"x 62" Flat, Part Number: SHT40F; (PSA) = Pressure Sensitive Adhesives.

Easy to cut and apply. Put it up forward in front of the windshield, and along the sides, for no slip protection.

I think that this is far from ghetto. At least the ones that I have developed (Wake-Shaper) are fabricated from 3/4" sheets of quality High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) with stainless steel / aluminum hardware .... definitely not cutting boards and duct tape. Get on board and try one out for yourself. Look how this thread has sparked so much creativity and discussion in the forums. Go thread crap somewhere else.

I'm stoked guys are getting out there and trying to figure stuff out that the company isn't doing for us. Necessity is the mother of invention and you can't dispute this one at all. Great job to ssnaples, and Aric, shame on you! lol

He needs a boat first.

Here's my favorite DIY setup with a NSS knock-off. Very professional. However, since I don't know how to weld, I'll be giving ssnaples design a try.
