    Amazing how many great options pop up with a simple inquiry/thread like this. Awesome job everyone!


    If only there was some kind of bumper guard to protect all of us from buying all these things we all post.


    "Ah...my precious!"  :huh:

    Can anyone confirm if the info from this thread regarding drilling the top rail for EZFender is applicable to the RCW?




    Also I see mention of concerns EZFender might rub on the cover?


    Thanks for any help!!

    I like my ez fenders are they are easily adjustable for different situations.  They pose no problems with my cover.

    Sorry for the delay. I really like them. Easy to move around and adjust height. Usually leave the height placement alone, but I have moved it around when rafting up with friends. Cheaper options available, but I'm happy with them.

    We use the Taylor Made pontoon fenders, they come with fender hangers in the package and install by drilling into the top rail, however, the straps slip between the rail and sidewall so we haven't installed them yet, but do plan to.

    I can’t make myself drill holes for my Scotty mounts. Two of them don’t require any drilling, but for two others, to keep them from moving while removing the fenders, I’d have to drill and install the ss bolts.

    Hahaha..... that's why I had my dealer drill my fender mount holes. I didn't want a chance of drill slipping with blackout ..... :confused:

    I used a center punch prior to drilling but have to admit it was pretty scary

    Drilling into the rails was no big deal. I just closed my eyes and hoped for the best.



    Of course that's a complete fabrication since I measured about 10 times, used a punch, made a pilot hole and drilled to size.

    What makes me nervous is the thin wall of the fence frame. I already have multiple snaps that are stripped out and the stud\snap piece just spins and spins. I've never played with them but pretty disappointing as I'm not aware of any fix for this.
