The fenders are widely used to keep the hull from rubbing against the walls of the pier after berthing, or to place them as a protective buffer between two other vessels during joint mooring or docking. They are often installed before such maneuvers as passing through narrow dangerous areas, when towing or locking, when tacking in crowded marinas.
Protective fenders located along the perimeter of the ship help isolate the ship's hull from impact and avoid surface chips, paint peeling, dents and scratches on the metal or fiberglass sides of the boat.
You should attach dampers in the following way:
- Inflate it using a compressor or pump.
- Thread cables or chain through the eyelets.
- Hang the fender at the side at contact points.
- Adjust the height.
On the ship itself, the other end of the rope is tied to special fasteners or low-lying fixed structures such as railing. The advantage of inflatable fenders is their low weight, high mobility during movement and transportation, compact dimensions when deflated. After all, few people get by with one or two fenders, usually on board a medium-sized yacht there is a set of fenders of several types and sizes.
