    Default Phender pro

    Are these a worthy option?

    My put: no. Not where the factory location is anyway. Get your own and mount them higher.

    The GoPro mounts are more useful in my opinion than the phender mount locations, but I think its all or nothing, don't think you can get just the GoPro mounts on the transom from the factory.

    It's cheaper that method. I thought about doing the after-market ones to the SL, but never got around to ordering them. Then it was on back-order, then something else, etc. etc.

    My fear would be a mount like this. In this pic if this is the port/bow location, looks too low if you wanted a bumper on the rub rail.

    Not sure if the design has changed, itís a pass for me though as Iím too worried about someone scratching up the gel coat trying to get it lined up and pushed in. Especially on a choppy day. No offense to any females on the forum, but go take a look at your wifeís door handle around the key hole... already too many tasks left up to the person making the payments, donít want to add another to the mix. Looks nice though and a great idea. On a white boat may be fine.

    Interested on the height issue, are they too low and you canít get the fender high enough?

    Itís actually a good deal for 6 phender pros. The hardware alone is $600-$700.

    Love mine, use them all the time. This is the first boat I've had with them and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Now having said that, I use Hippity Hops as fenders and have them tied off to the Phender pro right against the handle, so the diameter touches the boat below the rub rail. The phender pro receptacle has a large diameter on the outside of the boat and the pin has a tapered delrin or teflon pin. Haven't scratched a thing in 2 years on the current boat, and I'm not the one who puts the fenders out. With the Hops it's so damn easy, I keep 2 inflated all the time, and 2 more deflated. Literally deploy and retrieve your fenders in seconds, and the cleats stay clear of lines.

    The SA appears to have the rear one pretty high

    And the front one is on top of gunnel.

    I love mine especially the ones in the back for the GoPro mount.

    I added a set to my Makai and put them all on the top deck. A lot of the restaurants here have fixed docks and when the lake goes down it has always been a challenge to get the bumpers high enough. Put some on my last boat as well in the more traditional location and always wished I had done it different.
