  • Scratch em Up

    You guys who are not interested in scratching up your hull sides, take a look at Troys sig pic, the dock has the pilings on the outside, 8 inch fenders are not enough. I am thinking of lashing some 2 x 4 s tween the pilings to give the fenders something to ride on.

    Any other ideas post em up.

      I always looped my fenders on the pilings.It worked just fine for me,but I can see where others may get into trouble.

        You need to hang your fenders horizontally. Put a line on each end and tie them so the piling lies in the middle of the fender.

            Not sure I understand that one. You can always tie your fender off on the piling with two lines - one at the top and one at the bottom. This is how I do fenders on slips for big boats. The fender stays in one place and doesn't move.

                a "fender board" is not a bad idea, though i don't think i would want to haul one all the way from MI or NC

                bound to be a local lumber place where you can get a 16 ft 2x4 for reasonable $?

                  The fenders will stay on the poles if you tie them up. However, all the poles are taller than my rub rail (Pursuit) so I've never even been close to banging a hull side there.

                  There is no current, no fast moving boats, and rarely any wind so docking in there is easy.

                  Good luck to all..

                    Fenders should ALWAYS be attached to the boat so they ride up and down with the boat. Spring lines are esential, but if you cannot limit the fore/aft movement enought to insure the fender says on the pile then fender boards are the only way to go. Without fender boards the fender should be hung horizontialy by each end so as to maximize it length. If using a fender board then it should be hung vertically.

                        Slip #1 is on other side of walkway,right? If so,I think shallow water is the least of your problems.You won't be able to get under it with your t-top.I'm in slip #7,if we need to,I'll be more than happy to swap with you.I guess we'll see when we get there.

                          Adam made it under there with a T-top, hit it with the rub rail a couple of times, but I think shallow is going to be his prob.

                            I don't think slip 1 is on the other side of the bridge. That slip may be the one directly under the bridge though, but I'm not sure. The association hasn't numbered any of the slips past the bridge yet. You are going to be fine depth wise there.

                              There is no tide to speak of in Destin. Bumpers on the poles will work fine unless you just want to carry them around. The canal is like a pond. It really is no big deal in there; just narrow.
