Fender

 

a device to soften the impact of a ship against a pier or the side of another ship.

Ship fenders are dropped over the sides before mooring or secured to the sides in the places most subject to impact. Piers often have permanent fenders. Fenders are made from pliable materials (wood and rubber), woven from natural rope, or inflated (pneumatic). For mooring ships in the open sea pneumatic fenders made of rubberized fabric are the most suitable.
