We put them in the bow ahead of the v bunks, over the bow thruster next to the kayak and between the sheets, chain, and dock lines. Not sure if I have a photo. We do like the 30" round fenders though, they can be deflated and stacked like cereal bowls. We keep a half dozen of those aboard, a few of the cigar shaped bumpers, and the ever handy square 36" utility bumper.

Tie 'em to the mast on deck: Two 36" fenders, all I ever needed and they fit quite well there in front of the house.

As for "granny bars", they are called "Fanny Bars" around these parts..

I like the name "Fanny Bars"....just as soon as my grandma quits agreeing to do the reefing I'm gone re-christen them.

If you can look thru the snow and my poor freezing wife, you can see our fenders in their racks on the outside of the lifelines near the stern. it has worked well for us and keeps the secure and easily accessable. Two fenders on each side of the boat.

Photo was taken last November in the Dismal Swamp Canal. Diane had every bit of clothing she could find!!

You're crackers!! We have a rule about place names: We never go to a placenames like:
Dismal Swamp - or anything 'swamp';
Storm Bay
Wreck Bay
Desolation Cove
Trial Bay
Shark Bay
Deception Bay

We like places like:

Butterfly Bay,
Daydream Island
Sunset Beach

Etc.

Tell Diane to make you head to the tropics!



Mark
PS Fenders are in a lazarette locker. Buy a Beneteau and get storage

2 International orange Aere' fenders (I guess that's who made them. I could never have remembered the name. Thanx Cabo Sailor) are stored, deflated in the lazarette. Love them and yes, expensive. I have been known to use them as dingy seats. Anything that can do double duty is my friend.

2 Mooring ball fenders hung from stern arch, sometimes stored in the sailing dink hung on the stern. Really not in the way at all and quite handy to get to. They get more use.
