Re: Best way to make fenders easy to use...
Hanging fenders is like weight loss. All sorts of gimmicks, but we all know what really works.
I tie a round turn and two half hitches around the base of the stanchion. Not enough leverage to bend anything.
In a pinch, such as a transient dock, where I may need to move them around quickly, a clove hitch to the top lifeline suffices. Maybe pull a slip knot around the working line too. Once landed, I go around and secure properly to the stanchion bases.
There are millions to be made for inventing a better solution, but I haven't seen one I trust yet.
