        Comments about Tuff End Round Fenders:

        I purchased these fenders for our yacht club because they were on sale and the "Race Markers", that are the same size, color, etc., were not. They work excellent as markers!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was prompt and everything arrived in good condition. Customer service was excellent as far as ordering and delivery go. However, before I place the order I called West Marine asking what the difference was between the items called "Boat Fenders" and "Race Markers". I really wasn't given an answer. Basically I was told that the "fenders" were used when docking boat and the "race markers" were used for boat races. The fenders were on sale and the markers were not so I purchased the fenders and are using them as markers for our sailboat races.

              These bouys are great for our lake to define the outer portions of our swim bouys in our swim area. There bright color makes it easy to spot and makes boaters aware the area is a designated swim area.

              Talor should cut apart a basketball & see how a needle inflation valve is made. Theirs is wrong, and doesn't inflate without great effort. I couldn't keep the hole in the needle lined up with the hole in the valve.

                Comments about Tuff End Round Fenders:

                I inflated my two new fenders several weeks before I used them in a real-world setting and let them sit in the house to see if they would retain air. They both lost air, so I refilled several times with the same result: A slow deflation. I submerged in water, finally, and discovered leak was at fill hole. It occurred to me to turn the air inlet plug clockwise with a screwdriver, since it is designed to receive a phillips head driver. It indeed need to be tightened slightly and that seems to have solved the leak. A simple printed statement by the manufacturer explaining this procedure could have accompanied the product and would have prevented needless anxiety about possibly having to return the product. I almost did return it but it would have been an unnecessary return of a functioning product, at least so far (day 4 and they are still inflated).

                  These fenders are were less than 3 months old each time I had to replace them. Now, with the replaced fenders, 2 started leaking again, and Taylor will not replace them, said warranty was only good from original purchase, not replacement dates...

                  POOR FENDER, EXPENSIVE, UNRELIABLE
