Inflatable fender anarchy

Recommended Posts

I need to get a couple of fenders from the US to Mexico. I'm looking at about 11" x 30" size. Are there inflatable fenders that I can deflate to tak down?

Aren't most fenders inflatable? They don't shrink down that well, but I'm fairly certain you can deflate them for shipping.

The Taylormade fenders deflate and squish down to about 1/3 volume. Make sure you have the adaptor thingy for re-inflation. There is also a brand of big-boat fenders, very expensive, that really squish down. Like a toughened dinghy. Forget the name.

We use Aere fenders, pretty nice gear.  We went to then to save space, 8 large regular fenders take considerable space.

If you go to the  Mazatlan marine center page and download the guide, they have a Chandler listed who brings in west marine orders.  Two week delivery.  Should know flying down with large boat items can be spendy, if you get the wrong Customs person they can ding you pretty hard on import duty.  Small hand carry things are generally not a issue but they tend to grab anything big and want alot.
