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.
Georgian Bay: Just the words evoke ethereal images, stirring something special in the hearts and minds of all boaters whether you explore silently by kayak, traverse under taut sails or power through her more than 30,000 Islands.

As a semi-recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest from New England’s historic waters, I was thrilled to learn that the boating season in Seattle is much longer than it is in the 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, usually combined with some lively seas, especially when the wind angle disagrees with the tide. This combination of distinctive seasonal weather, paired with the Pacific Northwest’s (in)famous rain and grey, rewards cruising boats that offer some on-deck protection from the elements, as well as a comfortable saloon and galley for après sailing, once the sails have been furled and the cabin heater has been switched on...
