Re: Fender hangers...too many choices!

Fenders on lifelines....Not for me.....

IMHO lifelines are there to save your life not be to hang fenders off and abuse your lifelines & stanchions year round. I have watched lifeline hung fenders is storms too many times to ever even think of it..

I much prefer mine down low at the base of a stanchion, toe rail, genny track or on dedicated pad eyes... It is easy to create a cheap system where the same fender goes in the same spot each time. Simple carbiners can even work..
