We added one on our sailboat and mounted it the same way as Bigfish and tadhana. The CQR tip had chipped the fiberglass a bunch of rimes during retrieval in rough weather. Surprisingly the piece of ss i mounted was only about 4" square. Since I knew the area where tip hit the hull it was pretty easy to size and place.
