    With them on top of the gunnel, do you get any rope burn or scuffing on the edge of the gelcoat?

    Just do it. The next owner of your boat will be really happy with them.

    I've had the phender pro on my upgrade list since I bought the new boat just haven't been able to muster the courage it'll take to drill holes in my gel coat, and 3/4 in holes for that matter. My buddy has them in his X23 and they are great. Very convenient, nio need to tie and untie lines to the cleats and leaves the cleats free to use for the rope to tie to dock. They're a great invention and well worth the cost.
    They're not so expensive. Remember you need 4 sets of receivers but only 2 pins, unless you plan to put 3 on each side.
    I've been eyeing these on amazon:

    https://www.amazon.com/Phender-Pro-S...0VYE1KC535MZM3

    Two sets at 90$ each and 2 receivers at 40$each. 260$ total. That's pretty cheap for the functionality and convenience you get.

    Those are much better locations. My 2020 were too low.

    I was on a SE earlier this summer that had the top deck mounted location. Worked well. Only negative I could see were the ones mounted on the back, someone ? could ? step on them if they were not paying attention getting on/off the boat.

    Supra option gives you 2 per side and 2 transom, 4 phender pins and 1 go pro mount.

    Agreed. There's a little spray that comes up from the swim step right in front of the gopro mount. Makes that location essentially useless. I'm going to get another set and mount them higher.

    I feel the opposite. The fender mounts are perfect for the height of the docks around here. A lot will depend on how tall your docks are where you boat.

    But to answer Larry's question, yes they're worth it.

    No issues that I have seen. I do use thicker soft rope to tie them but honestly I hadnít even thought of that.

    I was worried how it would look going through the gator step but convinced myself I could get custom gator step pieces if I hated it and I am so used to it now that I donít even notice them unless they are in use.

    This look good through the gatorstep.

    If the rope rubs, I will add a piece of clear bra in that area.
