The first photo
is the 4"pvc "fenderboard" laying along the deck
and how the line is pulled through and knotted on both sides of the pipe. We were at a floating dock
in Gulfport so fenders were against the dock
In the second photo
, look just right of where we are standing and you can see the two fenders and barely see the pvc "fenderboard" against the pile.
Third photo shows behind the pile, almost hidden, to left of where we are standing, but if you blow up area you can see how it works. It has worked very good, is clean, lightweight, and very inexpensive. I think for two, it was around $12.
Lowes has the 4" pvc precut in 5 foot lengths and just buy two caps, clear cement and some 3/8" line. Drill 4 - 1/2" holes and thread the end of the line through and tie a stopper knot
. Tie another stopper knot
on the upper side and you are done.
This is a temporary setup for us as we are going back to Kentucky Lake in the spring, but with double braid nylon rope
it would be a great setup for salt water
