Product of the Week- Fast Fender

Fast Fender - let the pictures tell the story SW
There are two difficulties about getting fenders ready in a hurry:

First, they take so long to tie them to the guard rail.

Second, Murphy's law says that the level will be wrong and you'll have to retie them at the very last minute, or risk scratching your nice shiny hull on the dock

...that is, until Fast Fender came along...


These are natty inventions, a Dutch brainchild, but now they are sold in many sailing countries, including France, Italy, the UK, Portugal, Poland, Germany, the USA, Australia and Turkey.

They've been selling in Europe for three years, gradually being introduced, so that now they are popularly selling in 11 countries only in Europe!

Whether you are rafting up, heading for a dock or entering a berth with yachts or poles on either side, they have to be the ultimate solution for boaters who need to hang and adjust heavy marine fenders easily and rapidly.






Here are the advantages as I see them:
1. You can attach them with one hand, leaving the other for holding on or whatever.
2. They're fast on, and then fast off.
3. You can move them easily along the guardrail or wire, to get them into the most effective position.
4. The line is attached through a snatch block. This means with a simple release you can adjust the level of the fender to allow for the levels of the water, another boat, or the dock
5. They are very light, so there's no extra weight to worry about.
6. While they are very flexible as to the size of the railing or wire, there are two different sizes to accommodate all needs.

They are quite new in Australia, but becoming more popular by the week. You can contact the Australian dealer, or you can start the ordering process online, at www.fastfenderaust.com.au, and have them contact you.
