Re: Fender hangers...too many choices!
Yup, never ceases to amaze, how commonplace the practice of hanging fenders from lifelines is...
I think it would probably be easier to bring about an end to radio checks on 16, than to convince sailors to quit hanging fenders from lifelines :-)
"Hanging your fenders from the same spot each time", however, you Maineiacs are way too accustomed to floating docks... Fixed docks with pilings are one of the primary reasons god created the perforated aluminum toerail, after all :-)
I wish I had a perforated aluminum toerail. I've been using the round turn and two half hitches on the lifeline but I never felt good about it. The carabiners at the base of the stanchion idea sounds like a good one to me.
