What Size Should You Order?

  • Size recommendations vary widely depending on the size, windage and weight of a vessel, as well as wind, waves and current; When in doubt, purchase a larger size
  • As a general guideline, West Marine recommends one inch of fender diameter for each foot of boat length
  • The most accurate way to select the right fender for your boat is to survey your docking area to find out what fender is in use for the same size and weight of boat, in terms of fender dimensions and quantities, and use that as a guideline.
