Fender Bumper Buoy Cover

Just received my order for these covers and they are awesome! Good customer service and QUICK delivery! Check them out! 20% off.... Best cover I could find on the market. I didn't get a name put on but I got their anchor embroidered, very nice job! Heavy duty quality material.

I have the same ones for my boat. Only problem is that they hold water bad.

Its doesn't say what kind of material, just says its non-marking material .But what would it to to a paint job?

Ive tried the Taylor ones the felt like canvas, it would haze/scratch the paint.The polyform seem to be alto softer.The Polyform fender material is softer than the other fenders.I like the embroidery is cool,but I would say the thread could scratch the paint.just just my opinion.


East Coast B what does the material feel like?

Raise them up higher.

I know what you mean. Even though you try not to dunk them, it happens. The only problem is, I've never found any mesh-style covers that hold up. The ones I have are somewhere between terry cloth and velour in texture, but I couldn't get embroidery where I ordered mine. These look nice on the web page.

Hard to describe the material, very soft and very fibrous, looks similar to this material....

I've had the CapeHatteras for 3 seasons now and my boat has solid dark blue sides. Bumpers with covers are used often as we tie up a lot. No scuff marks or issues of any kind. The material is thick compared to anything i've seen and are extremely durable! LOVE THEM!

Default Cape Hatteras Covers

I have 2 sets of the cape hatteras fender covers and they are awesome. I've never had an issue with them holding water and the hold up very well. Both my boats have dark blue hulls and not a scratch on them. I spoke with Cape Hatteras before buying them and was told that they are in fact made of 100% recycled polyester. I've tried all the rest (taylor, west marine) and most are mediocre at best. These covers are the way to go.

Any chance that either of these covers is made in the USA?

Far as I know, the CapeH's are. I had called them directly to discuss specific measurements and embroidery work and they were delivered quickly.

Again, I like how heavy the material is and the soft feel of the material. I use huge fenders and never worry about other boats when they tie along side.
