A wear and tear pad in position to protect gelcoat.

The WearAndTear anti-chafe pad is a handy idea from Andrew Grogono, a former world speed-sailing record holder and the engineer in Great Britain who developed it for his cruising boat.

The ultra-thin, bendable piece of stainless steel with an adhesive backing is designed to prevent lines from chafing through your boat’s gel coat, say, on the edge of a coaming. The laser-cut stainless-steel pads measure 6 inches by 2 inches.
