How big of boat fenders do I need?
What size should you get? West Marine recommends fenders with 1 inch of diameter per 4 to 5 feet of boat length. So, a 20- to 25-foot boat should use at least 6-inch fenders; a 25- to 35-foot boat should use 8-inch fenders.
How inflated should boat fenders be?
A properly inflated fender will feel firm and still look cylindrical – no bulging side walls. When inflating with an air compressor, set the pressure to 1-2 psi. In the absence of a pressure gauge, you should be able to depress the sidewall of the fender about 1/2” with light finger pressure. Do not exceed 2 psi.
