Ship Salvage:

 
ROPE & METAL BUMPERS, FENDERS, WOOD BUOYS,
CARGO NETS, FISHING NETS & LINE (ROPE)
Used to prevent damage to boats and ships, rope fenders (or bumpers) were placed between the vessel and dock during an approach.  Many of today's docks and bridge bases, as well as vessels such as tugboats, reuse old tires mounted as permanent fenders. 

Ours are all salvaged but lots of
of new production versions have been popping up in fashionable home designs all along the coast.  These make great outdoor ottomans or door stops!

*Available items will read "available" under the picture - otherwise, item has been sold.
As always please call or email for pricing and availability!

Sold pieces remain pictured to show the wide range of pieces that exist,
that we have carried, and that we continue to try to find and salvage.
