Re: Tires as Fenders
[QUOTE=klem;1004371]On larger commercial vessels and tugs, tires are routinely used as fenders.
This is how tiger mosquitoes found rides to distant ports and came to like it in the new land.
That said drill holes and do not trap water in old tires. It is hard to get an old tire not to hold rain water this and just the looks is why I think they came to be hated as a fender imho. It is good to find a use for a discarded item. Kind regards, Lou
