I could possibly use some that way soon as I'm moving moorings soon 👍

Probably not a bad idea, Ray.  There’s a significant tidal rise and fall, so having a few on your mooring isn’t a bad shout.  We have a few on ours.

I have a good selection of sizes... sounds like they will be handy after all 👍

The fender is very important. Underestimated. Its size, its shape, its position on your boat is so relevant with regard to the well being of your boat. And your anxieties.

Imagine, boats colliding, perhaps an arm, a hand, a leg, or the boat hook.

Not for me. Never ever. Two, three tons of boat on collision. 

The fender. As used by lifeboat crews, as used by wherry skippers, as used by those of an understanding of the tragic circumstances caused by those who fend off with an arm, a leg, a boat hook.
