Hi Jeff

Yes - very similar and in fact I have one on my boat... but... this way the fender is much lighter and easier to move around. Probably not as strong as a fender board.. but very light.

Best,

John

That sounds like you have discovered the ''fender board''. I carry one on my boat. I typically make them from oak.

Forgive me if this has already been mentioned. I have a nice cove stripe on my boat but no rub rail. In order to keep from scraping the gelcoat, I have purchased a couple of those long flat fenders. They are VERY expensive, about $50 per... and they are only about 2ft long.

Well... I have tried a new approach and it seems to work great. I got a 3 ft long strip of the bumper that is used on docks... put grommets in two corners and ... bingo... instant long fender. $25. Longer pieces are available too. This helps when approaching a dock with pilings that are uncushioned.. or in place of wood brace.

Hope this helps someone ... and does not embarass me.

Best to all,

John
