Useful information


Fenders are designed to protect your boat from damage when moored. They are a cushioning device which should be placed between your boat and a pontoon or between both boats if rafting.

They should be attached to something solid on your boat. Attaching a fender to the lowest point on you boat, such as a cleat or the base of a stanchion will reduce the amount it swings.


Fenders should be inflated to the correct pressure to be effective. At 20°C/68°F pressure should be 0.15bar/2psi. Pressure should be reduced by 0.05bar in hot weather.

These are only a guide. When selecting and attaching a fender you need to take account of the mooring conditions and have an understanding of your boat. There are many variables beyond our control and you must accept final responsibility.
