Boat Bumpers

New boat = new bumpers. What are you all finding to be the best bumpers that don’t mark the boat and provide the best protection?

Look up Fenders. Go no smaller that 8.5" dia or get Big Balls.

Whaddya gonna use them for?  Occasional docking?  Tie-up to another boat?  How big (wavy) is your lake, etc.

Thanks for the info. So used to calling them bumpers.

Mainly docking on a slow lake but still sees some waves. Tie-up to other boats occasionally. Won’t really be docked/tied in really wavy conditions but want to ensure coverage is waves are encounters.

I like the Polyform  fenders. I just purchased a bunch of the G5 fenders (8.5x27) I think. For my 25. I always liked the 6.5 x24 for my 07 21LSV. I had a few different brands and prefer the Polyform.

Mission Sentry's for docking and Babz balls for tying up to other boats.

I thought about those Mission fenders. More expensive, have you had any issues with them and worth the extra money? They don't come lose with small waves, or scuff the finish on the gel coat?

I got some fenders from impact fenders. Found them on IG. Haven't tried them yet though

two summers now and no issues, they stay put and don't seem to mark up anything.  they're still in one piece too.

I saw these from a friend that’s in Switzerland. Looks like bigfender.ch printed on them.
