The FW III comes with 3 fenders, on the port side only. They are made of hard plastic as well.
This is all well and good, but I can't always be sure I am going to dock on the port side, (kinda depends on the wind direction), so I want them on both sides and functional.
I think they look kinda cool, and where I sail most of the time (at the cement pond) they are going to be functional to save my nice gel coat from concrete rash.
So today I made my own, and they are red and they are cheap (sorta), and they are squishable, and tough.
I made them out of Nerf gun pellets. Cheap material.
I nearly fainted though when I bought the Plasti Dip, just over $30.00 plus tax.
I was thinking maybe $10.00. Oh well, there plenty of other uses for it.
