U-Bow Rope Fender

From £79.00

Available in Black Polypropylene, Victory or Manila rope

Available Options

A brand new U Bow fender for a narrowboat or barge, hand made using black polypropylene rope hitched around a very strong, impact absorbing custom made rope core, with good quality BZP (bright zinc plated) chain fixed right through middle of core which will not pull out.  The fender is incredibly robust, durable and attractive.  It will not deform or lose its shape easily like many imported coir cored fenders.

U Bows are often designed to protect the bows of the boat and can be used alone or as a cill fender (mounted lower) combined with a Vee Bow fender.  They are easily fitted (with 3 chains, usually 1 to the top (attached with a D shackle) and 2 to the side attached wit straining screws (where necessary) and 2 D shackles.  This fender will provide good protection to the bows and is suitable for use on narrowboating or river cruising.  

Feel free to check our prices against any chandlery, you will struggle to find a good quality fender for anywhere near the same price.

We also stock D shackles, bow shackles and straining screws for fitting our fenders, for details just ask when ordering.

(Rope cored fenders are available on request.)
