The first step when we leave the dock is to stow the fenders and the lines. Clean and clear decks are a good thing.

... And we just had a bunch of work done on the decks so we don't want to hide them.

Fenders are on deck or in the cockpit when underway. Docklines and power cord stowed.

FF it is a small copper pipe that lets the electrons get from the wharf to the boat so that the lights will shine.

The correct term for an "Electric hose".

Sure thing! I really don't have a good close up, but we're supposed to get the boat back this weekend. I'll remember to get a good shot!

Well, I stop outside a marina and deploy the fenders and rig the docklines, so I suppose from thart point on I am "running with fenders deployed".

Febders are normally stowed aboard...."except for" when we are running in a canal system. Then they stay deployed.

If it's good enough for the tug boats:



It should be good enough for everything, right??

I love the guys who leave their fenders down. I pick up 2-3 every season. Thank you!

So you are the one with my fender?

There is nothing wrong with running dirty. AT least some of you are honest?

Most of the SO and older people have a very hard time pulling them, 15 to 20 lbs, in. Just what I need is a injury/heart attack on the boat. Hasve to start carrying one of the zapper things I do not like them laying on the deck as they become a hazard and then I have to look at them, better/easier to let them hang is long as they are not hanging/banging in the water.

May be we are just hanging around the commercial dock/boats to much?

In my boating venue, it is considered gauche to run with your fenders out. We refer to a boat with fenders out underway as havin' "yacht club racing stripes", a sure sign of a sliphugger.

gauche! Now that really hurt. When on Lake Union and on our dock we are the token white trash as most of the boat were meg a bucks, and we are a professed/confirmed dock queen condo. However, the Eagle is an ugly old classic trawler, so we tell them, that the way they did it back then. Heck most boats are not old enough to remember and/or if they are, they can not remember!

OK so I forget once in a while.

Youse guys must not boat around locks.

We always drag them in and out for local docking but while on the Erie, Oswego, Richelieu and Chambly we leave them down - on both sides. Especially in the Canadian system where we never lock alone.
