Hey guys,

Just thought you guys might like to see some rope fenders I made recently.

The black one was my first attempt, came out pretty good.
The white one has a loop both ends for the bow of our tender. Took a bit of fiddling to get the loops both ends but very happy with the end result

hmm Interesting project, but won't they make a mess of gel coat or paint?

Looking good!

BTW - All the local boats, tenders, etc in Galapagos had rope knotted front protectors.... they looked really good and helped protect against the harsh rocks in landing areas when sandy beaches weren't available. I'll see if I can dig up a photo of any..
