TAY­LORMADE

FREE­DOM FEND­ERS

Boating - - BOAT DOCTOR / BOATINGLAB -

BOAT SIZE: 35 to 65 ft.

SIZE: 12-by-32 in.

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.
