Do I need boat fenders?
Boat fenders are essential equipment for any boat to protect the hull from contact with docks, pilings and other boats. Boats are expensive but fenders are not; always have the appropriate amount, type and size of fenders or bumpers onboard, and use them properly. It’s better to have too many than too few!
When should you put fenders in your boat?
They’re used by all types of boats from motor yachts and sailboats to small runabouts to prevent damage to paint, varnish, gunwales and hulls overall. A must-have boating accessory, fenders can help protect your boat (and your wallet) in case of a docking mishap or unexpected motion due to wind or current.
What are marine fenders used for?
Marine fenders are a type of marine equipment that are used to prevent boats, ships and other naval vessels from colliding against each other or against docks, wharves and piers. These are also referred as marine bumpers.
