Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

Aloha,

Yacht is currently hauled out in Ensenada, MX for some maintenance.

The trailing edge of the sugar scoop transom takes too much of a beating and I'd like to find a way to protect it permanently.

I'm seeking a solution/product that will protect the trailing edge of the "sugar scoop" transom. Halfway up on the port and starboard transom the trailing edge is about 1/2-3/4" in thickness/width.

As the edges come down to the lower and middle part of the sugar scoop, the width of the edge increases to maybe 1 to 1.5 inches and the bottom face is flared somewhat (if that makes sense).

Things I've though of:
1. Stainless steel fabricated and molded to the edge.
2. Rubber molding that won't deteriorate or break down in the sun. I've scoured the internet for something that would apply but unable to find anything.
3. Maybe there is a liquid product that can be obtained and painted on that turns into steel like substance.

Mahalo!
Matt

Consider the possibility of using spray-on truck bed liner. It might yield a rougher surface than you want, but it is designed to take abuse.

Here in Greece my Bavaria has a thick rubber bumper attached to the sugar scoop edge.

Original since 2004 , the sun shines occasionally here too

Try to find out what Lagoon uses. We abuse ours sometimes with running the RIB up on it. ITs thick, white rubber like material. No obvious fasteners.

Re: Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

Of the options you've been considering, having one fabricated out of s/s will be the best. It will be very difficult to source pvc or other bumper material for such varied thicknesses, unless you can find a way to do it with different pieces, and then there's the color match problem. Whereas, sheet stainless can probably be bent to do it, and glued on.

Re: Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

Stainless is a very poor absorber of energy and will deform transferring the energy to the fibreglass behind it. So unless itís a massive structure it wonít be a great choice

Source a rubber bumper itís far better

Failing that , Iíve seen thick plastic. Sheet cut to suit deployed.

Re: Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

You can't beat black poly irrigation pipe for toughness and effective fending.

Use say 2" and cut a section out of the circumference so that it slips over the transom then drilling through the poly and transom from the side and lace it on there.

Re: Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

Iv used 3/4 in S /S bar , Good to grab , tie dingy on, Etc. , In lengths like a hand rail on the cabin top so if one part gets bent , damaged its not a biggy. On another boat I used TUFF DECK , The guy heated it up & bent it around , Worked good .

Re: Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

I’ve seen irrigation pipe split lengthwise as well as PVC boat bumpers also split.

When I researched rub rail I found a few sections that might work.

Try not hitting stuff.

Maybe a Keel protector.

Re: Seeking solution for protecting trailing edge of "sugar scoop" transom...

Appreciate all the feed back. While reading the replies, dawned on me that I could have the edge made uniform so that I could appliy a rubber soution that is uniform to fit. Thanks!

I concur with the stainless option of accumulated denting etc.
