I use 2 Hull Hugr flat fenders to keep the tubes off docks and away from any protruding screws/nails/whatever: Hull Hugger Boat Bumper | I put one a couple of feet in from where the tube-end cone start, and the other a couple of feet from where the bow taper starts. If the boat is going to be moving fore-aft against whatever you tie up to, consider adding a weight to the bottom to help prevent the fender from riding up.

You may want to consider the Taylor flat fenders which could double as seat or knee padding when not in use: Taylor Made Products 2016 Catalog , but I have no idea what size would be best.
