Eric Johns has now retired from the business and has passed this site on to me as well as his personal tools & the last fender he made, I would like to thank Eric for his frienship and time over the last few years and wish him all the best of luck in his new adventures. I will be updating this website over the the next few weeks and will leave Erics amazing canal story on the site as well as updating it as Eric moves on to new adventures. I am a time served fendermaker who takes great pride in my work and hope you will continue to use this site for all your marine fender and rope needs. Phil English
- Keep them dry before fitting or they won’t bend into shape.
- You can gently tap them in to shape with your lump hammer after attaching them.
- Look at some of the other boats it’s simple. The less chain links & shackles etc. the better. Simple is neat, the back button should be 1″ higher than the tipcats.
