    Seems like this would also be easily attainable as well at something like Home Depot / Lowes etc.

    I'll just be careful...I have used my "Ugly Duckling" Outback for four years and the bottom has just normal ramp rash...so Lady Luck has a few but with the Berkley Pro side scan sonar transducer cover that protrudes an 1 1/2 inch lower than flush...I have to be mindful of how to launch and recover...and the side scan feature of the unit is amazing- near photo quality images if you learn how to adjust the contrast and signal strength to optimize the bottom images...takes a while to figure out what you are looking at on the screen, but once you figure it out, it is an amazing tool...especially good in shallow water to stay near a channel or structure...

    How about a flexible cutting board and some 3M double sided tape?? You can cut it to shape and when it wears out just heat up the tape and replace. Here's a link to a cheap Wal-Mart brand.
