A Fender is an air or foam filled bumper used in boating to keep boats from banging into docks or each other. Boats usually have mobile fenders which are placed between the boat and the dock as the boat approaches the dock. Docks as well as other bodies to which boats may approach (such as bases of bridges, canal enteraces etc.) have permanent fenders placed to avoid being hit by boats.
Fender is the US English term for the part of an automobile, motorcycle or other vehicle body that frames a wheel well. In British English, the fender is called the wing (usually only referring to the panels over the front wheel arches, in modern cars, since the rear 'fenders' are more an integral part of the car's body shape). Usually a passenger automobile will have four fenders, with one over each wheel well.
