In our home port/slip, I attached protetion to the pillings that are permenant. These are dock protectors by Taylor Made Products and not exactly fenders in the usual term.

On board we also carry for when cruising to ports other than our home port and staying on a transient slip, a set of Three Cylindrical Shaped Fenders and Two of the Ball Type.

I usually only deploy the big balls after I get settled in the slip. They can get in the way and cause you to get hung up if your not careful.
