Hi Dave!
I didn’t expect the fenders alone to pull the boat up. But I did hope that once I step on the gunwhale and the boat heels as much as my body weight can push it, that their buoyancy would start working with noticable effect. Unfortunately the volume of 12 L seems to be too small and much bigger volume might be very difficult to pull/submerrge after inversion.
I think if there was time to hoist the fenders before the boat inverted, the crew would most probably be able to right it without any of these aids.
Best wishes,
Mato
