We've used the meduim sized "hull hugr roll up fender" for a couple years on our 18' Lund deep v and love it. With 7+' of coverage with 6 bumpers that don't roll out of position because they are sewn to the mat, it works great. Have a couple single bumpers that we may add up by the bow or very back, but usually don't need to. Just tie theboat to the dock with bungee ropes stretched so the boat is held in to the dock flat with even pressure down the side of the boat.

It has three straps and i use the lund rail buttons on both sides of the boat so we can deploy to whichever side we need it. Takes about 7 seconds to deploy and 4 seconds to remove.

We have the black hugr. Our boat is white and never get marks from it.

boaterfordays Try these from https://montauksupply.com/. I don't like the rubber bumpers because they make a lot of noise when I'm tied up at the dock. I have used these for over 5 years now and they don't scuff my boat. I originally purchased cheaper versions on Amazon but they rotted after a year. Someone in my marina told me about this company so I purchased from these guys and have been very happy.

Thanks. I can picture exactly what you are talking about. We already have older round regular fenders from our last boat. With these, I am thinking of using the Lund fender hanger strap and button to secure them to the Sport Trak. I would not be attaching them to a cleat. I have the 90 degree sport trak and a lot wider gunnels then the picture shows.

Bob, I bought the smaller ones first when I had my Tyee. They were not really long enough to protect the entire side, so I bought the larger size. If I carry fenders it will be the larger sized set (they do take up alot of room). I only use all four if planning on rafting up. the smaller size work great at the stern and larger size sitting by the windshield.
