'fender; has a lot of meanings including a rope mat put between a boat
and a dock to avoid damage to the boat, the skirt-like thing on the front
of a railway locomotive and, mainly by Americans, the thin shaped sheet
metal or plastic part used to prevent a wheel from spraying water, mud or
gravel onto the rest of the vehicle. The rest of the english speaking
world calls the last item a mudguard, so call it whatever suits you best.

When I was growing up we called that thing a "cow catcher".

No worries about not being a native English speaker.* We understood.

So did we in NZ.

The use of 'fender' for a cow-catcher as something I found in a
dictionary. I also knew of 'fender' as a nautical term for both the rope
mat thing used between two ships of ship and wharf and for horizontal
chunks of wood mounted on piers and wharfs.

Most vessel fenders are inflated plastic balls or cylinders with a line attached.
Rope mats are rarely used any more, even on tug boats.
Tugs generally have large used aircraft tires as fenders, or sometimes closely folded flaps of sheet rubber, attached around the bow, from one side to the other, like a giant piece of terrible tasting ribbon candy.

Old tires (tyres) work as boat fenders, too. ;-)

Yep, been there, done that.

Using aircraft tyres is a new one for me, though.
