I assume the marina's reasoning is that they don't want people putting holes in their docks willy nilly? I can understand that. Be grateful you have a marina that cares. My marina doesn't care what you do, as long as they don't have to do it! I've seen professional fender systems that mount to the dock. Don't know how pricey they are, but maybe your marina would let you install one of those if you promise to leave it when you leave, thereby improving the slip. It would be worth a few hundred dollars to me not to hassle with fenders!
