Here's a pic of some fender boards I made out of scrap pine 2X2 for a previous boat (made them for a specific piling situation with an older, heavier trawler). They ended up being very handy with the powercat when we did the Erie, Oswego and Trent-Severn canals.

In the photo I'm trial-fitting them in preparation for entering the Erie canal. They held up incredibly well for about 150 locks that summer.

PS: I ended up tying them direct to the upper loop on the fenders.That way they rode with the fenders when I adjusted height.
