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?

      Taylor always makes good product. People at store very helpful, friendly and informed. My only complaint is the price.

      Service and delivery comments:

      People at the store were very nice and helpful but I miss the days when west marine stocked items in the catalog and boat parts. It seems like it is more of a cloths and toy store. Its not just this store but many around. If I need marine parts and assessories I have to shop elsewhere where they are in stock. I think good advice would be to stop listening to accountants and start listening to your customers.

                The boat came with 2 small fenders. This one is so much better to fend off the boat from the dock when in our own slip.

                      Comments about Taylor Made Big B Fenders:

                      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.

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