Boat Fenders

Boat Fenders Every boat needs fenders. Boat fenders are bumpers that are used to prevent the impact between a boat or vessel berthing against a docks, jetty, sea wall or even another vessel. Fenders are used to prevent damage to boats, vessels and berthing structures. To do this, fenders usually have high-energy absorption and low reaction force. Fenders are typically manufactured out of rubber, foam elastomer or plastic which are ideal for absorbing the shock of an impact while sustaining little or no damage themselves. A Quick Overview of Boat Fenders Rubber fenders are either extruded or molded. You might not realize it but a lot of consideration goes into their manufacture. The type of fender that is most suitable for an application depends on many variables, including dimensions and displacement of the vessel, maximum allowable stand-off, berthing structure, tidal variations and other berth-specific conditions. The size of the fender unit is based on the berthing energy of the vessel, which is related to the square of the berthing velocity. Yachts, small leisure craft and support vessels typically have mobile fenders which are placed between the boat and the dock as the boat approaches the dock. Docks and other marine structures, such as canal entrances and bases of bridges, have permanent fenders placed to avoid damage from boats. Old tires are often used as fenders in such places.
