Transom Fenders

As SPRING is in the Med for the next 18 months, I need to consider suitable transom fenders for stern to, Mediterranean style, mooring.

My prior experience on a 421 had a barrel fender tied to the rear stanchions and grab rails - not perfect as the fender easily rides up.

What solutions have others employed for the 450 sugar scoop as in pic? There is no lip onto which a stern fender can be attached.

A fender option is below - but this could damage the anti-fouling if tightened below the waterline.

Stern Fenders - Anchor Marine

P.S. I know the dinghy is the wrong way around!

Transom Fenders

PLASTIMO and TAYLOR MADE both make a few types of Heavy-Duty Dock Bumpers that cruisers have been attaching to the sterns.

Re: Transom Fenders

Why do you say dinghy is wrong way around ? I thought dinghy can be oriented either way ?!

Beacuse the power davit winch is on the port side, and hence want to use that on engine side of dinghy.

"Beacuse the power davit winch is on the port side, and hence want to use that on engine side of dinghy."

Both the Port and Starboard Davit Lines are led to the same winch on Port transom, so why does it matter which way around the dingy is?

I have been told using both lines on the winch risks an over-ride. But experimenting will tell ...

We have used both Dinghy davit lines on one winch of some time now.
Seems to work fine.

Both lines work fine on the winch...unless you mean both lines at the same time?

Re: Transom Fenders

I have never tried both lines on the winch at same time.

I usually pull the bow of dinghy half way up by hand, winch the aft all the way up, then finish the bow off with winch. Been working for over 2 1/2 years, so not likely to change anything now.
