Tired of scratching your side rails when dip-netting from your boat? Don't like taping towels to your dip-net or hanging rugs or rubber mats over the sides of your boat? Try this:
Buy/use some perc pipe!
Percolator pipe is used for leach fields and is rather cheap.. If you have a Phantom, SJX, SeaArk, etc. (I'm sure it will work on other boats as well) cut a segment in half, split down the yellow line with a box knife and put it on the sides of your boat.
Here are a few pics of my Phantom to show you what it looks like installed. Its an easy, temporary, cheap, and lightweight way to keep your boat looking nice while your dip-netting.
