CD—

In the design on my blog, the fenders are tied to the board and prevent it from riding up or off the fenders under most circumstances.






PS—another photo of the BBQ meister motoring... has anyone ever seen a photo of him sailing his BBQ barge???

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.

Two techniques that help keep the fenders between the board and your hull: 1) tie a small line between the top ends of your two fenders so than can't work their way apart and outside the end of your fender board.
2) Place the fenders so that the rub rail is against the higher third of the fender and the board is pressed against the lower third of the fender. This will prevent the board from riding up over the fenders. 'take care and joy, Aythya crew

I have a pair of boards constructed with these:


I used fairly short board lengths so the board would not contact the curvature of the hull. These work great on pilings and you do not have to worry about a fender popping out.
