My thoughts and prayers go out to all parties concerned.
It could have been anyone of us when we were younger.
I know I was involved in more...
Was stuck in overflow camping at one of the lakes here. We were partying with friends and one of them had his electrical van there.

Planning on replacing some on an older boat using 1/2in polyethylene puck board and composite lumber at some point this year. Will outlast the hull ;) 🍻
Glad to see you actually driving it! I know both types of collectors. The ones who trailer their cars to meets and the ones who travel all over America ( some towing trailers behind them) with their creations. The ones who drive them are much more fun to party with. To many good stories to tell...

It was called Puckboard. It's used on various construction projects and of course around hockey rinks;), comes in a variety of colors and thickness.

I used the 1/2in for mine.
Used the same product on my fenders 3yrs ago. sanded with 80 grit and glued marine carpet to hull side, stapled over edge with stainless steel staples on wheel side. No issues und will never have to replace.
