Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Here's another super low buck "project" for trailerable boats. Slit some 12" or 18" pool noodles and slip one over each shroud and turnbuckle. Use tape to keep the slits closed. The noodles will protect the deck finish from being scratched by the shroud wires while travelling. I keep the noodles on while raising the mast; they keep the turnbuckles aligned properly and prevent kinks. Once the mast is up, I cut the tape, remove the noodles, and toss them in the back of the van to await the trip home.
