southshoreS24 is on a distinguished road
i was going to suggest something like the bumper guards you see on cars in urban areas. but that seems like one already made for a boat.

Make two detachable 1 inch webstraps which can be connected on one end with plactic snap or to an eye hook at the far end of each side of the steps at the bottom of the transome after the bottom step, clip the the other end of the webstap to your stern rails. Pull them taunt with adjustable slides. Your dinghy bottom will be guided to the water instead of the scoop. When the dinghy is stowed. simply detach and store in lazzarette. Will take two minuytes to set up when lowering dingy and since you have those nice steps...easy to do also

Izzy..... you're right. A $40 solution almost sounds too good to be true.

Southshore..... if I hadn't found the fender, that would have been exactly what I was looking for. Thanks.

Chef...... Thanks for the idea. The pushpit braces and backstays guide it all the way to the lowest horizontal part of the transom. I don't think the webstraps would hold it off the paint at the bottom and wouldn't help when boarding or returning.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
