Fastening fenders to the side of a boat can be tricky and time-consuming. Accon Marine's 401-R Fender Hangers enable boat owners to easily place and remove fenders without repetitive tying and untying.
Users conveniently attach the fender to a loop on the hanger which snaps into a fixed base. The unique quick release feature enables the loop to remain connected to the fender line when separated, eliminating the need to fasten and unfasten the fenders.
Constructed from marine-grade 316 stainless steel, they feature a low profile and sleek appearance. They're available with 1/2" or 1" loops to fit most fender lines.
Incredibly easy to install, these fender hangers do not require any cut-outs. They simply mount on the vessel's surface with two #10 screws.

How about golfing more maybe? We’ve pretty much ignored golf for the last 15 years right? So we agree - we’ll replace the boating with golfing and who knows what other Alberta adventures on the weekends.”

As a semi-recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest from New England’s historic waters, I was thrilled to learn that the boating season here in Seattle is much longer than it is back East, provided, of course, that your boat is up to the task. While our summer months here at 48 degrees north are characterized by massive high-pressure systems that park-up over the Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island, delivering bluebird days that are void of any real breeze, our fall, winter and spring months offer plenty of pressure...
