What exactly is a stern fender and how big would it need to be? I have several odds and sods which, if you are down on Oulton Broad,  you'd be welcome to, provided one of them is suitable.

Graham, don't think that I can manage one three foot fender but I'm sure that I can find a couple of good two footers. Will you be down at the WRC over the weekend?

Graham,

    I would recommend getting a couple of A2 ball fenders. I use these on the back and on the sides as I find them handy when you moor up against the steel corrugated edging  - I dont find the sausage shaped ones help much on their own if the tide gets too low.

I have a few black or dark navy fender lines - think they are 6 or 8mm 1.5m long with pre formed loops in the end. Will be at WRC tomorrow and can bring a few down if you let me know how many and if they are of any use?

Oh Graham you shall be banished to the other side with comments like that!!

Sorry, I forgot you may not have been following all the posts on here like the rest of us.

So just up the road (or river) from Beccles.

You can always PM (private message) me and I can give you my phone number if they may be of service to you. Now dont ask me how to do that on the new forum, but it's something to do with the top right hand side I think.
