I decided to try my hand at a homemade version. The stitching takes some time and bending the 1/8" stainless plate using the "heat it and beat it " method was tough. Only five more to go.

Nice job, Dave! That looks great. The lengths to which we'll go to pamper out teak rails. Beautiful!

Got a question, which pertains to the store-bought hangers of the same style.

What's to prevent the hangers from being flipped off the rail? It's not uncommon to have a fender "roll" aft (or forward if your backing out) and put a lot of sideways load on the line holding it. If the fender line is tied to a stanchion or rail, no problem. But on these padded holders I can see them being easily flipped up and coming off the rail if the pull from the trapped fender angles fore or aft.

I imagine that it could happen, hope it doesnt. The one I put together has an inch of stainless plate bent to fit under the rail. The leather and wool probably make it another 1/4" which is almost half the rail width. These pictures shows it.

No clue, does it matter?

Seems like a waste of effort when there are simpler/cheaper solutions as previously explained. But if it makes one happy, GREAT!

Does anyone use these fenderhook hangers? Do they protect the varnish on the handrails?
My question is why? I've used odd pieces of line for almost half a century and have yet to have damages a rail. They look nice, and I'm sure are very funtional, but isn't there other items more deserving of your spending money on than those?

"My question is why?"

The spacing on my stanchions often makes it a PIA to try and get a fender centered on the dock pilings. With these it will be fast and easy. My rub rail does not extend far enough to protect my top rail. I really like the way these things look on the "rich guys" boats. I enjoy a challenge and had a blast making them. It will be money well spent for me. IMHO

Look great Dave

Thinking about making something roughly similar without the wool. Kinda like Eric's Willard, my boat has lifelines instead of rails. The stanchion spacing on my boat doesn't seem to line up with where fenders should be either.

Thanks for the inspiration.

We are fortunate here in that the tidal ranges pretty much force all docks to be floating so we never have to moor to the pilings themselves. All they do is keep the docks in place and so are usually on the ends of or up through the centers of the docks. Our boats are almost always up against the continuous linear edge of the dock itself. So there is no need for precise fender positioning.

Lol each to his own, brother! Each to his own ;-) i suspect he has the same passion for making things as you do for rebuilt engines.

Same is being asked of me and why I'm rebuilding a 1958 timber boat that was rotting on the hard for the last 7 -10 years.

Job well done and more power to ya old mate!

Well if you end up switching out those black plastic rope guides for some nice stainless jobs and start making them to sell, I'll take 8

I really like them. My fiancÚ saw these on a rather pricey boat over here at ab oat show and thinks they are absolutely great. ;-)

Well done! :-D

I missed this post of yours. Hendo's comment made me scroll back. I like your idea. Looks to me like you need a commercial singer sewing machine then you come turn out a bunch of them for sale.

Through Bulkhead design

Here's a link to a Selene part apparently for post delivery installation by a yard or handy customer through the bulkhead.
Looks like a similar item could be easily fabricated and installed. Failing that, a hole in the bulkhead with a chafe guard would work. Simply pay out the line to length and secure with a figure 8 knot to act as a stopper. I have zero experience with any boat with lifelines, rails, or bulkheads coming from old wooden sail but it ain't a boat without brightwork IMHO
