I've got a 22' seasport and have been pulling a lot of pots this season by hand. I plan on a puller at some point but with limited funds its all by hand at the moment. Anyway, as I get the pot up onto the gunnel and into the boat I am getting lots of scratches and nicks/chips etc. Has anyone done anything clever to protect the gunnel from lots of pot abuse/use? I am thinking of 3m paint protection for starters, but ultimately would like something sturdier/beefier than that.
anybody have this problem on a seasport or other fiberglass boat (olympic)?
