Fender line Securite™
As vessels become larger and larger so do
The category of yachts and mega yachts blurs into super yachts that may encompass vessels from 30 meters to over 100+ meters; so it's important to understand their individual requirements. Most
enderHooks© are sized from experience. Generally as vessels approach 50 meters, the structure of the core changes in thickness, width and grade. The captain's or first officer's input as to the use, moorage conditions, and stability of the vessel are considered factors in the final design of the
enderHook©. As vessels push past 70 meters, consideration of stainless steel 316L by 4.7mm, 6mm by 100mm would be considered necessary.
Hardware is another area where
enderHooks© offers a choice of look and functions for the larger vessels. Fairleads can be black plastic with a stainless steel ferrule, which is very traditional and low keyed; stepping to an all stainless steel (316L) closed fairlead that can be ordered with thru bolted (with cap nuts or nylon lock nuts) or fastened from the underside (blind fastened) with a machine screw (for appearance or statement). And for quickness and ease of setting and retrieving fenders the E-Z Fairleads are a handsomely designed and finished 316L stainless steel guide that is functionally efficient and proportionally appropriate and pleasing to the eye. We believe that fairleads should not have an industrial "squarish" look, but should be beautiful; like jewelry on a beautiful woman, it subtlety blends and enhances to whole yacht, but does not draw attention to itself. We also offer the large stainless steel Schaefer Cam Cleats, but can also supply other brand cam cleats if so requested.
As an alternative to the "endless knot or braid"
enderHooks© offers the "Fender line Securite™", a velcro strap that secures, neatly, the fender line. It is adjustable and a quick upward pull releases the coiled fender line for instant deployment.
