Cheap Fender Hanging Device

I have discovered a neat product for hanging your fenders. Better yet, it's half the price of anything else out there and free shipping. I ordered a set today.

The Captains Hook

When I get them I'll let you all know if thet are any good.

What's wrong with tying a knot?

I just can't see tying fenders to the lifelines. When you roll against the dock it stresses them down and makes creaking sounds below. With all the firm holes in that toe rail,- that's the place for me. 'take care and joy Aythya crew

Hmm...looks like easy pick'ins for a five finger discount too - slip off and go. At least make the petty thief work for those fenders!

We need a better solution to the theft problem than knots.

I'd also point out that generally the lower that you tie the fenders on the stanchions, the better. If you tie them to the life lines, they have a lot more leverage and if they get caught under the dock, they might damage the stanchions.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I hate tying anything onto the lifelines. My fenders go to the toerail.

Fender Hangers

There is nothing wrong with tying a knot but I like the convenience of easy removal when I leave the dock. Call me a snob, but I hate the look of a sailboat dragging their fenders along side the boat. Talk about lazy.

In regard to theft of fenders...I've never known anyone that has had their fenders stolen. I have kept my boat in several different marinas, over the years, and have never had a problem.

I lost a set last fall, and have to replace them before I sail. Usually clip them to the toe rail, and move them to the lifelines when sailing.(clears the side of the boat) Unlike the old set the new set will be clearly marked with my boat's name.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
