To put black marks on your hull. Stationary black rubber and a moving boat are a bad combination and the dock always wins.

they can be a bear to remove. Not that i have ever rubbed the dock hard enough to leave marks but i have helped others

Sometimes the rubber kind of like vulcanoize to the gelcoat.

A mention...

Soft, durable, good looking, and easy to keep clean cloth stockings on fenders virtually eliminate fender marks on any color or material hull.

Lucky for us, at our dock, the roof support posts have white vertical rubber runners for our gunwales rub rail to contact if a bump, rub, or bounce situation were ever to occur (which of course never happens! Ė lol ).

There is nothing wrong running dirty if the water is calm and the bumpers are hanging in the water. When moored on Lake Union for 12 years we ran dirty until we got though the locks going west, and though the University cut until Lake Washington. So I donít think about takeing them in until we are in open water.

We invest rubber/plastic dock rub/protection and 8 round bumpers left on the dock, However, we still sometimes mark the hull, which is no big deal as I can rub out/repair quickly, which is the reason I use cheap Brightside which is easy to match. But that is one of the nice things of having a ugly old trawler as bang/marks just make it look meaner/used. We have a new neighbor across from us a 70+ ft old ocean tug from Alaska that has tires permanently mounted. The more I look at then, the more I think that is not a bad idea. Except I would use white wall tires. I mean we donít want to look to trashy!

Must be a yardworker thing. The fenders weren't hanging out when the Coot was picked out of the water.

That's what the painter at the boatyard recommended. Gently rub using a soft cloth. The streaks came out easily.

Yes. The wax goes back on easier than the streaks come off.

Yes it will but any other method of trying to remove the bumper residue will as well. You can't polish or buff this stuff off. Acetone disolves it.

I don't know how acetone affects marine paint but that's still pretty much the only way to get it off.
