    Question Hewescraft Splash Guards

    Does anyone have any experience with or a picture of the splash guards that go on the bow of the SeaRunners to keep some of the water off the windshield? I think that Mike's Welding in Sterling has been making them for a couple of years now.

    Hi Dewey,
    Do you mean like a spray rail that would go just above the waterline ?? check these out www.thesmartrail.com

    Gary at Greatland Welding and Machine in Palmer put splash guards on an aluminum boat last summer. They looked pretty good. Next time I have my boat down that way I'm going to have him put them on mine. I don't have a picture but he might. Looked very easy to do on a Hewes.

    Aloha Steve Thanks for the link, I've never seen those before. There is already a chine(?) at the waterline on my boat & from what I've heard these guards go at the top of the gunnel & consist of an 1-1/2" angle looking down over the rub rail at the water to keep the spray from douching the windshield on every bump when you are running in the chop.

    Yanert thanks for the tip on Greatland. I'll give him a call after I get home this weekend.

    I had Greatland install mine a couple months ago. AWESOME job and they work great.
    They are welded on the reverse chine from the bow back about 5'-6'.
