Transom protector for catamaran

Greetings from the Sunshine Coast in Australia. I have a 42ft Fountaine Pajot cat that is operated as a bareboat charter and want to protect the transom scoops from careless skippers and unforgiving marina pontoons.
Does anyone know where I can source a robust 'rubberised' fender or rub strip that is flexible enough to wrap around the outer edge of the transom?

The previous owner, builder, of my boat applied some iron wood for the same reason......i2f

Re: Transom protector for catamaran

The PDQ 32s and PDQ 36s have something like that, as do the PDQ 34 and PDQ 41. There is a PDQ forum. Also the mnft.

PDQ 41 - Exterior Gallery

It is a soft rather thick vinyl moulding that wraps around. It's not a fender, but it is rather like a replacable rub rail.

How about using a dock bumper.
Pier Bumper

Or maybe a Plastimo "Bumper" Dock Fender

Re: Transom protector for catamaran

interesting thread. I've been hit at least 3 times on the transom by people trying to dock and undock behind me. One guy caused over $800 in damage. Glad I was onboard when he did it. I don't know how many times I was hit when I'm not there. A rubber fenderboard hangs there and I've noticed it gets moved alot.
I may not be as good as I used to be, but I am as good once as I ever was

Give these guys a look: - Your online source for rub rails, bilge supplies, boat cleaning supplies, and other boating accessories

They've got flexible rubrails in differing thickness's & materials. One of em should suit what you're looking for.

Another alternative are pontoon fenders:
