I looked at that article. It is a good idea but my issue is not rubbing up and down while tied up. I can keep the boat off the pilings with my lines. My issue is when entering and leaving the slip. the tide can be greater than 5 knots and it swirls. Also, if the wind
is blowing strong, i get swept sideways. The kids
that work at the dock, even if they are there, never do what i ask them to with the lines. I often rub the pilings. I am concerned that if i use a fender board it will get caught on the plings as i scrape by.
