Peeps has anyone used these to protect say a boat being towed. In the past on my other Tournament boats I used the rock guards that went on the boat trailer and down the sides of the bow.
This little almost 40 yr old Carlson Glastron I’ve been restoring will get a new trailer eventually but some input on the Tamers that hook into the receiver hitch would be appreciated pic for reference
FYI the 12 year old kid driving the Brown one is me and was the boat that got me into boating, the green boat is me the 50 year old kid that is wasting a lot of money restoring an old boat that has sentimental value. 44996009-2561-4B9A-839A-171FB0E9E7DC.jpeg9C458D96-3ECE-46C6-B1F2-1F13533B01A2.jpeg67CE6E56-A77A-4A46-9309-2A256F015138.jpeg25B9B29D-915A-4F3E-A792-C3546F9A6231.jpeg

I don't have any relevant info for you but the boat looks like a fun project.

Not the exact thing...but I’ve used a Towtector for years on my F150. It needs a mod for the 1500 due to rear exit dual exhaust. But was mostly effective. Not perfect. It has bristles instead of the rubber flaps. It mounted the same way as the Tamer, around the hitch. I have no pictures at the moment.

Well I took the chance with them and was worried about melting them with our exhausts. Fortunately they are so adjustable that I was able to set them up with enough room this last trip and now will probably cut the 4” holes in them to be able to mount closer in towards bumper. Rock tamers have a kit that is basically just a beauty ring for that purpose.. 82027DA2-9763-437C-9EB2-0ECAEB745BAD.jpeg

Honestly the 4” trim ring they(Rock Tamers)sell has a screen in them but I don’t see how a rock could get through there especially as I adjusted and tucked my exhaust tips tighter up to the bumper? So far so good nothing looks to be getting through them I’ll keep an eye out.
