HOW MANY BOAT FENDERS ARE REQUIRED FOR A BOAT?
The amount of fenders required for a boat varies depending on the vessel's size. Typically, you need one fender measured at an inch in diameter for every five feet of your boat's length. For example, a small boat may require just two or three fenders, while a vessel of over 30 feet may need more than six.
WHERE SHOULD I HANG BOAT FENDERS?
Hang your boat fenders several inches above the water to keep it in good condition. Place at least one fender at the widest point of the hull and the other at the end of the stern. The more boat fenders you hang, the less likely your boat is to experience damage.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE RIGHT BOAT DOCK BUMPERS?
To choose the right boat dock bumpers, you need to take a couple of things into consideration. First, think about the areas on the dock that are most likely to come into contact with your boat. If a boat slip exists, make sure to put boat dock bumpers on all three sides. Additionally, determine the size of your boat and how great of an impact it could have if it hit the dock. For example, if you have a small motorboat, a corner dock fender is a good idea. Larger vessels require something more heavy-duty like a twin eye fender.
