A practically FREE TACKY BOW BUMPER for your Soling.
Slice off an inch of a foam swim noodle. The kids
won't miss it.
Slice out a narrow wedge as shown.
Take that Dremel tool you got last Christmas and
use a grinding wheel to grind a slot on the inside, the height of
your deck flange. Make it a little deeper at the center.
Make a shallow cut on either side.
Loop a rubber band through the bow front screw
Slip on the bumper. It should fit snug.
Wrap the rubber band around the
bumper to engage the side slots. Now that you have the basic design,
you can cut another slice and make the next one more attractive.
A touch of glue on the bumper at the rubber band slot will prevent
loss during a collision.
