GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – April 16, 2008 – Taylor Made Products has introduced a new line of pontoon accessories just in time for the 2008 boating season.

The Fence Saver II, constructed of rigid PVC, is designed to prevent damage to the soft aluminum fencing at the boat’s perimeter. It protects the top rail, door section and side deck rail, shielding the boat from dents, dings and scrapes that occur when rafting a pontoon boat to a conventional hull boat. Similar in appearance to a fender, the new Fence Saver II features more rigid construction to prevent it from collapsing against the fence, yet the air-filled product maintains a pliable cushion, effectively reducing the force of an impact. With a new cam lock and strap fastening system, the Fence Saver II eliminates the need for access behind the fence rail, where a lounge seat is typically located.

Taylor Made Products has also expanded the company’s line of pontoon accessories to include a flag pole socket and flag kit. Engineered of injection molded nylon, the socket mounts easily to the top of the pontoon railing and offers a 10-degree presentation angle. Available in 24-inch and 30-inch lengths, the bright-dipped anodized aluminum flag poles simply snap into the base and feature color-matched Charlevoix® flag clips. Accompanying flags are available in two sizes, 12 inches by 18 inches and 16 inches by 24 inches, to correspond with the two flag pole lengths. The kit includes socket, pole, sewn flag and flag clips.

“These latest additions to our product line allow our customers to derive even greater enjoyment from their pontoon boats,” said Dave Karpinski, vice president sales and marketing for Taylor Made Products. “Boaters may now proudly display their colors using only two screws and a snap-on pole, and the Fence Saver II protects the malleable aluminum fencing for added years of enjoyment on the water.”
