Block Patterned flexible RIB Fenders

I saw these being used at the Powerboat and RIB show in Portsmouth a month ago. They were white and made from the same sort of material that normal fenders are made and inflatable. They are rectangular and measured about 12" width and 30" long by memory with quite a large block pattern.

Who's selling these? They looked ideal for a RIB and so much better than those 1/2" thick polyprop ones.

If it's the one I saw it's flexible and consists of small blocks. Something along the lines of the crap drawing I've attached. I've also tried to find it again but had no joy.

That's fantastic! Thanks for posting that, you've saved my drawing skills being ridiculed from all of RIBnet!

They're the ones!

Where to get them from?

Errr no! That's a ladder! I'm not after a ladder
