The other option would be to flip the boat on it's side and put the comptip cover on after you're done sailing
I like that idea a lot, but I've got wings, and they're a little cumbersome to deal with trying to flip it on the beach.
Looks like spray paint is the most durable way to go...too bad though, I really don't like changing OEM parts.
this is what I do (303) hit it once at start of season & once mid-summer
I considered this, but it seems like it would not last in the brutal beach environment. I'm going to give it a try before I go the paint route.
thanks for all the input
