The question of whether
to cover fenders seems to be a mixed bag. So we offer them. Some
prefer the look and feel of covers, others with painted topsides have
said it was highly recommended by the painter/manufacturer. Looking
around boat shows and docks at painted topsides proved few heed that
advice. However if your topsides have a new expensive paint job, or you
just like the feel and look, we would recommend not just any
covers but fleece. Covers made from awning fabrics can scratch topsides
easily as vinyl fenders can scuff. It's important to keep any cover
clean because accumulated dirt can also scratch the paint. The
increased loft and openness of fleece helps keep it cleaner.
Our preimum fleece covers are available in dark blue, black, tan
and dark red.
They easily attach with
velcro by simply wrapping around the fender and folding over the ends.
The only part of the fender exposed are the loops. Their easy to open
to get at the air valve or remove for cleaning. With a slightly
deflated fender they could even make a nice pillow.
