Wear and Tear PadElimination of rope chafe damage to gelcoat surfaces

Having sailed most of my life, I have always appreciated simple solutions to practical problems. Keeping the appearance of our yachts in good condition is fundamental to maintaining their asset value and, for this reason, I designed a new product to protect Cockpit and Cabin sides from rope chafe damage.

Called the ‘WearAndTear Pad’, it consists of an ultra thin sheet of marine grade stainless steel, held securely in place with a high specification self-adhesive backing. Following two years of successful trials on my Beneteau First 375, where the Genoa furling line had been causing serious wear to the edge of the cockpit, the product is now available through our stockists or directly from our website: www.WearAndTearPads.com .

‘WearAndTearPads’ are quick and easy to install. Simply ensure the application area is grease free and dry, peel off the adhesive backing sheet, and press firmly into position. Should you need to remove the pad for any reason, just heat it with very hot water and peel off.

Sized at 150mm x 50 mm (6” x 2”) and 225mm x 50 mm (9” x 2”) these laser cut ‘pads’ are supplied ready to fit and are easy to apply.

Over 9,000 orders have now been received from almost every corner of the world. As you will see from the photos, these ‘pads’ are visually attractive and completely eliminate rope chafe damage to gelcoat finishes.

THE INDUSTRY MOURNS THE LOSS OF JOHN ROY

John Roy 400Roy, John Alexander
October 22, 1955 – August 12, 2017

John Alexander Roy passed away quietly at home on August 12 after a short battle with cancer. He was 61.

Music was in John's blood, playing both trombone and piano, but it was on the ocean that John found his calling. He first took to the water in the mid-60s aboard his father's schooner, the Jeto. Soon after he began his 50-year relationship with the Royal Nova Scotia Yacht Squadron (RNSYS) as a junior sailor, instructor, member and Vice Commodore of Sailing. Sailing bridged pleasure and business for John, and in 1980 he began working for Ocean Yacht Sales before buying the company in 1990. OYS was a business and a passion that... READ MORE
