|Extra long fenders are proving to be
our most popular, because they're unique, useful and
easy to store. So for 2012 in addition to
the original heavy duty, we're introducing a new simple
design for hanging horizontally, with easy handling and a
new low price. The improved handling comes from a
lighter weight and multiple attachment loops along one
side, so they're easier to carry and particularly useful
in raft ups.
In many situations, having one long fender
can be safer and easier to position than using smaller multiple ones.
One example is as a replacement for fender board arrangements where a board
is used horizontally to span several vertical fenders. The arrangement
is not only difficult to store but the fenders can often work their
way out of position. Extra long Easystow Fenders®
are 5 feet long,
fold up for easy storing, and reduce three components down to one.
The design allows them to hang horizontally without rolling out of position.
Another use is as dock and post fenders.
Used vertically on a post their longer length can help cover tide
ranges. Used horizontally along docks makes docking in a slip safer
and easier. As we all know, sometimes entering your slip doesn't
go exactly as planned. One customer, after the water level
dropped, attached several fenders to 2x6s, then hung them
into position, spanning the dock posts.
For attachment to wood docks or
posts, in addition to tying, the fenders can be screwed or nailed
through the webbing or loops as it is not part of the air liner.
This makes for a more secure and permanent attachment.
Extra long fenders have even been used
along gunwales of dinghies and row boats to provide added flotation

constructed the same as all Easystow Fenders with a liner to hold the
air and a cover to take the abuse,
and since the outer wall is reinforced, they won't balloon. That is
if you try to push in one area, another area can't over-expand beyond
the original diameter like unreinforced material would in such a long
length. So they support more load. They can be pumped up firmer then
standard fenders and will support more pressure.
Same as all Easystow Fenders, they have a 60 day full
refund less shipping and are warranted against manufacturers defects
for as long as you own them.
