    Fenders, unless you hang unrully children over the side, then they are bumpers.

    No, my wife is used to fend off the dock, the fenders are there in case she screws up

    C.A.D.'s .....Contact Avoidance Devices

    In the past they were solid foam....but now use air entrapment technology...... at a substantial increase in price. However C.C.A.E.'s (Certified Contact Avoidance Experts) and advertising agencies have convinced the marketplace that the "new" technology actually adds three to five MPH to most hulls.

    If the boat is underway and the "FENDERS" are still hanging over the side they are referred to as tampons.
