Mailport: September 2011
The Value Guide that appeared with the July 2011 report on chafe gear (page 10) incorrectly listed the price and recommended line size of the Fjord Chafe-Pro (model 08-HB-02) that was tested. The correct price for this commercial-grade gear is $50 per guard; the maker recommends it for use with 1- to 2-inch docklines. Fjord also offers a less expensive “yacht-grade” line of chafe gear for lines 3/8 inches to 1.5 inches. PS will report on these in a future article.
