Default In Bilge Fender Holders??

Does anyone know where to get those fender holders that are mounted in the bilge, and you just slide the fender in when there not in use? I have seen them on some boats and would be interested in adding some to my boat.

Most are custom made out of Star board or something similar,Get a big hole saw or jig saw and cut them out. The boat builder may have a template for your boat if they did them on your style boat before but I doubt it.

I had them in my hustler, I would not recommend them, mine broke into little pieces from running the boat hard. and it is a pain to work on the motor with those in there.

West marine has some Stainless steel ones that you can mount where ever you want. It's like a heavy wire basket. When they are in your way, you simply lift the holder out of it's braket to remove.

I saw some in a new Cig at the Chicago boat show that looked like they were made from large PVC pipe.

I was going to take a fender to Menards a see what it fit in.
