Boat Fenders - And don't forget "Fender Boards". These are basically 2X4s, or 2X6's (based on boat size), that are approx. 2 ft to 4 ft long. With a cushion at each end, and the cushions resting against the hull, they provide great protection against dock pilings, especially those with nuts, bolt heads, or nails protruding. They also allow longitudinal as well as vertical boat movement....generally much more than the typical cylindrical inflated fenders do. You can purchase them complete or merely the pads for the ends from your local marine supply store. They work great on sailboats as well as power boats....I didn't say that did i?
