Over the years, I have always referred to Bumpers as Bumpers and been told that bumpers are for cars and that they are called Fenders. So. after a great story on Bumpers/Fenders yesterday it was pointed out that indeed they are called Bumpers by Chris Craft on the hull card. B.U.M.P.E.R.S. I am never right. Just ask the boatress. I always felt like a fool when corrected.
It was like a rope vs line thing, which by the way I always get wrong as well. Or Boat vs ship, or yacht. I get all those mixed up. I can never tell Starboard vs Port. I even made a t shirt to help, and still dont remember. But on this. Wooohoooo! Frank Miklos says its Bumpers. So this is for all of us that call Bumpers Bumpers! Rock on!
