Some time back someone said that the were using cut down sleeping mats. Cheap from a camping shop. They must be 6ft long and abour 2.5ft wide. Chop it length ways and punch some holes where you want them. Could even weight the bottom to stop them riding up.
Hope that helps.

Here are my Rib Fenders in use on the BIBOA cruise this Easter

Sometimes it is easier to tie the fender to the wall, over the rough bit - then when the boat moves you are still protected

Note how easy storage is for these fenders - just tuck them between the tube and the A-Frame

Cheers

Pettal,
I use brass snap clips attached at each end of the grab line where it forms the loop. Seems to hold them at just the right height without sagging.
The clips are a lot faster to use than hitches and you can still swing them inboard until ready,
Got to have black or orange fenders though; can't mess up your colour scheme!!!
cheers Dal

I use the grab handles to tie a standard fender to. However the problem is the rope chaffing on the tube so I got Scorpion to cut out some 'fender bibs'. Just a piece of hypalon with a hole to fit over the grab handle - the rope then secures it. Used them successfully for a few months now and they don't ride up or move about at all.
