Hello everyone, I'm new to HOC having just purchased a Hardy Pilot SE. I am having the rope fender replaced and have been advised that the wooden strips on the hull are rotten and need replacing. Does anyone have any experience of doing that? Any advice/tips would be helpful as I want to ensure that I get the right people to do the job in the right way. Many thanks.

Hi Richard,

Yes they are not cheap, however, they do last well and they are the correct length and constructed with a wire core so that they keep their shape when put round the boat and secured on the boat corectly round the bow on the lacing eyes.

If you need any advice on how to fit it, just give me a call. on 07534045729.

Regards

Simon Papendick

Hi Richard,
You can get a Rope fender from Hardy Marine, there is about a couple of weeks lead time on supplying the Fender and as to be paid for before they can place the order because of the cost of the Rope Fender. I can not remember the weight. As it depended on the whether she was a standard build or with or without an extended wheelhouse and tankage.
