THE ULTIMATE BOAT FENDER BUYERS GUIDEWhen I purchased my first boat, I wanted to make certain I did everything possible to protect the hull from damage. Being a new boat owner-operator at the time, I knew I would make a few mistakes while learning and wanted to make sure I never damaged the hull of the boat, especially when docking. As a result, I knew I needed to buy boat fenders for protection.As a result, I started doing some research and let me tell you, the information about boat fenders was overwhelming! I was nieve and assumed all boat fenders were the same. Boy was I wrong.
