How many of you use Transom Pads on your Bu's.. ? I never used one on my 06 VLX and did have some nicks and scratches from the wakeboards and surfboards.. Seen this one and thought it might be a good purchase.. ?

I think I seen a pad once that goes around the edging of your swim platform too, to keep the nicks, scuffs and scratches off the edging of the swim platform. ? Anyone see these or am I dreaming. ? I couldn't find anything on them now. ?

I have been thinking of using one of these SeaDek transom protectors. What do you think?

We've sold them a couple of times via the Crew. Here is the design of the last one we did.

I have one of the crew pads and love it! I think it looks cool and also has protected the transom when a newbie is struggling to get a board on or off on the teak deck. It is very well made and fits great!

I see any of these would work perfect on the earlier VLX boats, but the changes to the 09 VLX with the cut-out seat at the back, puts the handle below, where it would be covered ? I don't think these would work as good on these 09's ? Thoughts ? Posted Image

I don't use mine all of the time, but do break it out when I am taking out a group of newbies. I don't have to worry about the transom with my regular crew.

I had the Bakes/Crew group buy style a few years back and loved it. Easy on and off and it slid down between the transom and swim platform so it didn't fly around. Great concept that worked perfectly.

I have the crew pad and love it because when going down the road some one can see that I'm a member and one of you may just pull up on the side Posted Image
