Which Piece Really Came
From A Sea Guard Fender?
The piece on the left is of course from the Sea Guard® fender.
The piece on the right was brought to us by an unhappy customer who thought one of our fenders had failed him.
It turned out to be one of our competitor's fenders. We can under- stand his confusion though, because there are other people making foam- filled fenders that look like ours.The problem is they aren't made like ours.
At Seaward, we make sure our fenders are up to spec. Consistently.
Our Urethane skin is unique. It's rein- forced with nylon tire cord wrapped in a helical pattern and integrated within the skin itself. ® This gives our skin a tear strength up to six times greater than non-reinforced skin.

Whether it's our Sea Guard®, Sea
Cushion® or Sea Float.
So the next time you're considering fenders, remember the lesson learned by the disgruntled customer mentioned earlier. Cheap imitations can be very expensive.
