A short time ago I realised that over time the stern fenders had become compressed and they were no longer covering Albert's ample rudder. Since this is their prime job I thought I would sort it out whilst at Braunston. It's no good a rudder not quite being protected.
We consulted Pete Flockhart of Tradline Fenders and now Albert, unusually, sports four stern fenders - three tip cats (two standard and one deep belly) and button.
Four stern fenders - the new one is the inner tip cat
