Two big fenders per side.
Two 8' docklines per side - 3/8 braid with an eye-splice.

At least 4 -10' docklines.

Try to stretch a 6 foot dockline over an 8'6" beam boat when one boat is trying to slip out of a raft-up = loss of $200 Oakleys.

Geeze...the ladies are tough tonight.
Id go 2 big fenders, bigger than you think you need but still managable.
4 twelves
2 twentyfive's
That should cover most any situation even though you will most often only need 2 telves and fenders.

That's ok...I know you were kidding! Besides, I busted his chops on another thread a while back. But, he is a good guy and I'm sure he'll get a laugh out of this.

Take care!

actually I will add one thing, we don't have covers on our fendors/bumpers and a guy we were going to raft off of, made a big deal about it. So before the next poker run I am buying those stretchy covers for our bumpers, not sure what they are called, but you might want to get those also
