Re: Learned something(s) today

Jim - One comment from your blog post. The teardrop fender that you have is great for floating docks (I have two for my boat), but they may continue to get you in trouble with fixed pilings. You should make up one or two fender boards. I used a PVC pipe instead of wood for this, and the results were very good. I used these general instructions as a guide.

Here area couple pics to demonstrate (not my boat):
