Hello Steve.
I replaced my rope fender through Rope Services UK. Houghton Le Spring.
01915842709. That’s the latest number I have.
Anyway when I ordered it the guy asked me if I needed the wire rope core. I didn’t but I can only assume they could have supplied. Worth a phone call.
Regards Robert

Hi Steve
It is about 10 mm plastic covered wire. When they were fitted at Hardy Marine there were four lacing eyes fitted on the underside of the knuckle spaced apart about 14 inches from each other and two u bolts fitted each side of the engine well. The rope fender is fitted to the lacing eyes with 3 mm nylon lanyard

Further to a message I posted on here a few months ago re the rope fender for my Fishing 20. I now need to know where I can get hold of a wire insert for the rope render. The rope company who was recommended do not do the wire and can’t tell me who does!!
Any suggestions please??
Thanks Steve

I've just done a diy rope job on my navigator using an old ferry rope. I opened the end up to thread the rope and I reckon the steel cable was about 8 to 10mm max.

Hi all,

Can anybody tell me what diameter the stainless steel core is in the centre of the fender? Unfortunately when I bought my Hardy Fisher 20 the fender was already missing so I’m having to start from scratch.
