Does the rubber take the paint off the motor?

I have a cover for my boat. How will splashguards affect using my cover?
If the cover is loose fitting some covers will go over the guards, otherwise most drawstring covers can be tucked between the boat and the guard. If you have a tight fitting snap cover you can leave the guards on if the rear snaps are relocated to the top lip of the transom. Guards can also be easily removed in less than a minute.
