Re: Fender or barge boards

Do follow "Lepke" white rubber standoff advice and a 2x4.

Inflatable ones ride up as too light.

This works.. Pilings, canal walls, concrete or rusty steel posts

Re: Fender or barge boards

Sorry for my silence/absence, hmmmm was busy with boating.
Thank you for the tips, I like the dual purpose role like passarelle or storage for rods like Maka did.
Will likely order some Easystow fenders, and decide on the fender boards after that.

Re: Fender or barge boards

Used a piece of 2x4 one year when we had a seasonal slip with pilings.

OK for semi-permanent slip but a pain if you are traveling.
