Fenders

Made some fenders from cheapo EVA gardening knee cushions .
Ideal and eliminates any chafing when moored up at the dock.
These type of canoe dock are fairly common here in the Netherlands.
AE`s being quite low can also tend to get stuck under sometimes depending on the water level .
These work perfectly to protect the deck and hull from damage and green slime.
Easy to attach and adjust to any position alongside the hull via the single
line and carabiner and very lightweight .
I decide to make them hinged in the middle so they hug the hull shape and also the lower half if needed , folds upwards above the waterline once underway.
