Yeah, I love my Taiwan Trawler and I certainly love the looks of his Grand Banks. To each his own, I guess.

As far as the subject goes....we are guilty of forgetting to pull them in from time to time.

Okay, but what is the proper fender deployment for boatyard use?? This guy could have at least deployed them all at the same length!!

Proper for boatyard use, in my opinion, would be no fenders at all. They get hung up in the straps on the Travelift, and those fenders hanging down have to be a nuisance if pressure washing or painting the bottom.

As we don't know what the boat is in the yard for, it's hard to determine the reasoning behind the fenders. However we have seen boats in the Seaview yard in our marina that are being washed for the customer. If fenders are tied "permanently" to rails or cleats, the guy doing the washing simply puts them over the side when it comes time to wash the deck and cabin sides and the boats look like the photo posted above.

I didn't have time to read all of the posts. But we call them "Gypsy beads"!!! Because that is exactly what they look like when they are dangling from the side of the boat while underway.

OK so I forget once in a while.
We are at a similar dock, we had t shirts made up that say "Trawler Trash", and we actually use the boat for cruising and captain it ourselves :

thats a good idea when you are speeding home dead tired and weaving all over like i so often see on the interstate. The bumpers kinda protect your boat from the trucks if one gets a bit close. Why didnt i think of this

attempts??? Should only take one try. Why do you think they have ruber on the edge of the slip? your suppose to just point er in the general direction of the slip then goose er a bit kick it outa gear and wait till she stopped rattling around before disembarking. Most important to take her outa gear.
