Re: The Perils of Rafting On

Rafting up would seem feasible only where there is absolutely no chance of any kind of sea building up. Fenders are probably not going to be much help with boats bouncing around in waves. It's just not an option in open water anywhere and should only be considered in very protected anchorages.
