Obviously the captain has to prepare his vessel for the expected situation.....

Once there, often a quick change in rigging fenders and lines might be necessary....but we digress...

The OP was intetested in permenently installed fenders for a home dock...lots of possibilities, some not like what people from other areas can fathom.

Each situation is so different that a guess is just that, ultimately motion is the enemy and dirt on boat or dock fenders is bad. Rubbing transfered to rubrails is better...rubbing on flat surfaces is bad.
