Big B Fenders by Taylor

Warranty covers bursts or splits. In my experience the common modes of failure are pinhole leaks or valve failure (not covered).

Poor quality

By Roy

About Me Casual/ Recreational

Pros

    Cons

    • Molding Flashing Excessiv

    Best Uses

      The Taylor big B fenders are of poor quality!
      There is molding flash all around the fender that is able to scratch paint off.
      Obviously they have run the mold to death and are now selling this product on to the customer.west marine needs to get some quality control in place before the reputation sticks.
      Sorry but I will wait till next year to see. If it improves.

        Great product. Ours recently withstood pretty intense surges while on the dock in Nuevo Vallarta. A plus is if they fail they have a lifetime warranty that West Marine has honored in the past

          Comments about Big B Fenders:

          I use these threaded with 1/2" nylon line to float in a line along my floating dock, and they work quite well keeping my pontoons off the dock in rough water. I've also used three (in a triangle) around my steel piers entering the docking slip.
          They work well until they sink, which is quite often.
          Anybody know of a solid floating fender?

            Comments about Big B Fenders:

            I substituted the fenders for dock pillows at my dock with eye hooks as a permenant barrier between the boat and the finger. Negates needing to deploy fenders from the boat when docking.

            Purchased 4 bumpers and 1 leaked slowly from the 1st week I used the bumper and now the 2nd is also leaking. The issue here is when you need the protection they leak and provide very little protection. I think that Taylor should pay for the scuff repairs due to deflation of a new bumper!!

                  Husband wanted the product in the store and I denied his purchase so it would be a Christmas. Color match is perfect and I know my husband is pleased because it was delivered in clear plastic wrap!

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Product arrived on time, no email confirmation of order or product shipment and really, clear plastic for Christmas time deliveries? No surprise under our tree.
