Fender Friend

Fender Friend, $22.99

The combination of wave action, the boat pinning fenders against the dock and worn lines can lead to lost fenders, which can lead to a damaged boat. The FenderFriend puts an end to this issue with a fender whip and hanger that features a built-in shock absorber. It stretches 12 inches so that when a wake or swells rock the boat, the fender stays in place, protecting the vessel without additional strain to the rail, cleat or lifeline. The system includes a UV-resistant nylon webbing strap and a sturdy Nexus marine-grade buckle. Boaters will appreciate the shock absorber’s stretch when they are idling into the slip, when the moving boat can squeeze the fender out of place.
