Love your handiwork, Dave. I'm still in a struggle to get the more practical necessities done on my own vessel, but it sure would be nice to undertake such a project. Well done.

Beautiful work and it shows a lot of pride in your boat. If I had teak cap rails, I'd buy 6 of those. Well done!

I saw this on a boat this fall. Seems elegant and simple. Not really adjustable unless you had several knots in the line.

Here's a little different twist. I use this style fender hook that comes with a blue nylon strap. Worked great on SS railings, but I wanted to hang a fender board on the Sundeck where the railing has an enclosure. I took some strips of aluminum, bent in a "J" hook, drilled rivets and removed the blue strap and refastened to the aluminum diamond plate. Epoxied some carpet to the back and WaLa

I have seen those at boat shows they look real nice but to rich for my blood and too tempting to some no gooder who might decide to rip one off. I use a Rolling Hitch on one, or two stanchions if hung hrizontally.

I removed the stanchions and related lifelines because the walk around was so narrow it was a hazard. When I then realized I had made myself fender-challenged I left the stanchion bases in place, smacked plastic plugs into them (increasing the height) and I use those pegs for attaching the fenders as needed. Admittedly not as classy as th OP solution but works for me!

Next season I am planning on securing two fenders to my slip, thus easing my approach to home base. Very few seem to do this.

I use two of these holders and really like them, although one receives a heart attack when checking new prices we like the fact that we can slide them along the cap rail to move the fenders as needed.

They havent scratched the teak at all and while we went through about 20 locks this fall the fwd holder also supported the aft lead to my large inflatable fenders which kept us off the lock walls on the TenTom, so the holder was supporting two fenders without any hassle.

I am looking for a couple more but not at the advertised price of $500 + each.

I inserted in every post supporting the handrail, a round brass piece.
This make possible to adjust the fender to any hight requirement, and rubrail is totally free
