One of my fenders resembles a J and is upside down over the corner the rear is tied up to the same cleat that ties the boat off. I never untie the ropes only loop through the boat cleat and done.

I anchor buddy my boat every place we go. once you get used to how far out you have to threw your anchor out and how long of lead you need to let it back out from the dock for best results, it is super easy to use and works great. not even close enough to a dock for any damagae to happen. (and looks cool!)

I think anchoring would have been best in this situation. I even had a very good box anchor that would have kept it in place in the boat. Yep hind sight 20/20 that is what I am going to do next time.

Still waiting for my IL reg. And supposedly you are supposed to leave the old on there until you get it.

I'm pretty sure much of Wisconsin would be fine with limiting the flow in from IL as well!

I had the same needs this past July- heading to a rental with no dock protection in place. Fortunately I knew what type of dock was there, and bought these bumpers that fit over the dock poles. They went from near the waterline to well above the dock, and gave great protection. When I ordered them, I thought they would be soft foam, but they were a firm hollow plastic that dropped right over the poles. Under $100 for four off Ebay and obviously portable. They fit under the bow cushions in the MC for the next time I need them.

I Did The Same Thing. I Added Vertical Posts On The Pier. The Only Part To Touch The Boat Is A 3 1/2" Vertical Post And Not The Entire Pier Edge. Before I Added Them, Waves Would Come In And Almost Rip My Entire Rub Rail Off!
