The fender is a good idea, I had tried it and the jug worked better for 3 reasons. (1) With the jug half full of water it was weighted better to underhand throw. (2) The handle on the jug made it easier to underhand throw. (3) With it weighted better it sat in the water better and caught the current better for a speedier return to the boat. Make no mistake the fender will work, but I found that the jug worked better.
