lot of boaters, the heavy duty versions are more fender then
needed for general docking and rafting. The standard duty

fenders either vertically or horizontally. The 4500 lb
webbing is overkill so it can take lots of chafe. Although

multiple fenders for a larger cushion.

the cover. Much like putting a kink in a water hose but the
tubing is designed for constant flexing. Any high volume air
pump with adaptors will fill the fenders in about a minute
depending on size.
Fleece covers are available in blue and black. They have a
nice soft feel, look good and wrap around the fender using
Velcro, so they're easy to put on and take off.
