You lie, the coloring is excellent, amazing brush work, I can taste the salt - just the right amount of rust. :ugeek:

regarding the fenders - yes, tires are used for fenders everywhere, but only in port, and lazy peace time operations.

I cannot believe any Boatswains Mate would have his boat gone in to combat with fenders hanging over the side! :(

Thanks. for fenders I basically agree, I sail a bit and the first thing, after untying and leaving the port, is to remove and store the fenders. But I see a lot of motor boats that drive with fenders constantly on their side, and here are a few pictures of landing craft with fenders.

fenders are required until the first mark turns.
