Genuine Coir Rope Boat Fender
On offer is a traditional style coir rope boat fender with a loop for attaching to the ships gunnel rail. These fenders are hand made using natural coir fibre rope and are often seen as the preferred option for narrow boats and boats using inland waterways. Rope fenders are handmade, being coiled and knotted to produce a thick, protective bumper, which is attached to the outside of a boat to prevent damage from impact and protect both the boats and the moorings from unnecessary knocks. Fender ropes must be strong, thick and tough and of course resistant to both fresh and saltwater damage, as boat fenders may be exposed for many years. Coir meets this requirement admirably and is often the fender of choice for classic boat owners.
Genuine coir fenders also make a super decorators item and ideal for dressing your beach hut or nautically themed room. We have just two remaining from a project and as our source has shut up shop so when they are gone they are gone. Each fender measures 16" (41 cm) from bottom to top of attachment loop and is c.3.5" (9 cm) diameter.
