Plastimo Boat fenders

it's a ideal solution for small boats and yachts in addition to other fenders on board. The inflatable is designed from PVC fabric "1100 Decitex" and come equipped with standard pump valve for inflation in few seconds.
the Inflated Size: 15x45 cm.
Multi-function Step/Ladder fender
The Multi-function Plastimo ladder maybe the perfect solutions for boat owners. They come in 3 Versions, from 2 to 4 Step (3 to 5 kg) to enable easy access on board and protect topsides. In additional this Multi-function ladder works very well as the step fenders will keep your feet off the topsides.
Only the critic is if the people want it to serve at the same time, as both type a ladder and fender then you have to go for the ladder.
Those Ladder/ Step fenders are all very well and works great, but if you mount them in such a way that they are acting as a boat fender Multi-function fender will have to be at correct level. They are very useful ladder, which fit well securely into sockets mounted to the outside of the boat hull at the gate on both side.

As most boat owners know, fenders (sometimes erroneously called bumpers) are cushions designed to protect boats from directly contacting rigid structures such as docks, pilings or other boats. A fender is suspended on some kind of line or strap (called a fender whip) that is connected to a deck cleat or stanchion.
The type, size and number of boat fenders you choose will depend on the size of your boat and the kind of places you typically tie up. Big, heavy boats need large fenders, and more of them, to absorb the energy of the hull moving against the dock.
Boat Fenders come in several shapes, including cylindrical, sphere, pillow and flat. Some have eyes on one end for attaching the whip, some have eyes on both ends and some have a tunnel through which the whip can be threaded.
Regardless of the type of fenders, you need a suitable method of suspending them along the side of the hull.
You can made your own boat fender whips by using a length of three-strand nylon rope and splicing an eye in one end. The eye-end was connected to the fender eye, and the other end was connected to the rail with a clove hitch.
Methods of attaching the fender
There are other methods of attaching the fender. Fender hangers come in a variety of configurations. I eventually settled on Tidy-Ups Fender Adjusters from Taylor Made (about $15.99 each, taylormadeproducts.com).
These consist of plastic straps that snap over a rail, and the whip passes through a knurled wheel-type cleat that allows for easy adjustment of the fender position.
Cleat it off
Some boats don’t have rails, so owners rely on deck cleats. One complication is that the cleat may be needed for the dock line at the same time. With this in mind, place the fender whip on the cleat first, so that you are free to remove the dock line without disturbing the fender.
There is one problem with that method, if you need to raise or lower the fender, the whip will be trapped beneath the dock line. And that’s where this next product will come in handy.
The product, called FenderFriendby Shockles®, is an adjustable fender whip made of inch-wide tubular nylon strap into which a bungee section has been inserted. The bungee acts as a shock absorber to ease the strain on the fender whips as the hull moves against the dock.
The Fender Models - STRETCH IS GOOD
With normal fender whips, when the fender gets trapped between the dock and hull, the force can be enough to break a whip, rip out a deck cleat or bend a rail. Another possibility is that the non-stretch whip pulls the fender from between the hull and dock, leaving the boat unprotected.
The FenderFriend comes in two styles, Twin Eye and Center Tube. Twin Eye models come in small (12 to 36 inches; $16.95) and large (16 to 72 inches; $22.99), and Center Tubes are universal (16 to 72 inches; $22.99). Available in red, blue, silver or black, they are guaranteed for two years against breakage.
Twin Eye model boat fenders are intended for use with fenders that have an eye built in. Simply thread the tail end of the FenderFriend through the fender eye, double the strap back on itself and tie a figure-eight stopper knot. The other end has a nylon buckle that creates an adjustable eye in the strap so it can be looped around a deck cleat, the base of a stanchion or around a rail. The buckle permits easy adjustment of whip length, even if the strap is trapped under a dock line.
The Center Tube model is threaded through a fender that has a tunnel down the center. This style of boat fender can be hung vertically or strung horizontally along the side of the hull while being suspended from any combination of stanchions and/or deck cleats.
Whatever type of whip you decide to use, inspect it often to prevent chafe from getting out of hand. The few dollars you spend on fenders and whips is excellent insurance against having to spend a lot more to repair hull damage later.
The air bat fenders
The air inside fenders will expand and contract based on ambient temperature. To compensate for temperature changes, buy fenders that feature an inflation valve, and use a basketball pump and needle to make the adjustments as the seasons and temperatures change.
