COLORS: Black, white
PRICE: From $105; overtons .com; taylormadeproducts.com Made of military-grade PVC, with oil-resistant treatments added so the fender isn’t damaged by time in the bilge, it has a V-notch to nest around a piling when hung horizontally by a fender whip fastened to each of two eyelets. An eye on the top allows the fender to be used by hanging it vertically.
BEST USES: In a marinamooring situation, where the boat may move fore and aft along a row of pilings at its mooring, the fender will roll with the motion and keep the boat’s hull protected. Also, by hanging it vertically, it is ideal when rafting a boat alongside or transiting locks.
