Hanging the bow fenders on many boats is uncomfortable. Now, using the Automatic Fender™, we can dock without leaving the Cockpit! The Automatic Fender deploys the bow fenders with a single push of a button, without the need to climb onto the boat's bow/deck. The fenders are stored horizontally under the railing, almost invisibly. The Automatic Fenders are made of a very durable, white, and shiny Polycarbonate/ASA material. They blend nicely with the boat; making them almost invisible. Fender height from the water is set to support different height docks and rafting/tethering (boat to boat) tying. Operation and installation are very simple: only three clamps to connect (no drilling). The Automatic Fender comes with a rechargeable battery, charged using a solar cell and Bluetooth communication. To avoid expert installation or any electrical connection to the boat, we made significant investments in extremely low power design, large solar cell, large batteries and easy to install clamps. For maintenance-free long-lasting operation, all electronic parts are sealed and conformal coated. They are waterproofed, complying with the very demanding IP67 standard. Due to its large battery and very efficient power operation, the Automatic Fender can be stored for winter in an indoor storage and will still retain power until Summer. It will retain power even if the boat stays in storage for winter! It takes only 2 sunny days a year for the upward facing solar to keep the batteries fully charged. The Automatic Fender supports operation even in cloudy regions and covered docking. The horizontally facing, large solar, provides defused light charging in shaded areas. The Automatic Fenders can be controlled from any location on the boat, and are delivered with a unique username and password to prevent unauthorized operation and deter theft. The Automatic Fender family supports up to and including 12x34” center hole fenders. The Automatic Fender eases bow fenders deployment in Cruisers, Fishing boats, Offshores, Speedboats, and any boat with inconvenient bow access. In most boats, stern access is convenient; therefore, we do not promote the Automatic Fender for the stern fenders. In large boats the Automatic Fenders can be used as the bow and midship fenders. From all fender Baskets and fender storage solutions they are the best looking. The fenders are stored horizontally under the railing, not blocking the captain's view.
