Premium Boat and Dock Protection

Premium boat and dock protection does not have to come at a premium price tag.  WhamGuard Rotating Boat Dock Bumpers are and easy and affordable alternative for protecting fun and investment on the lake.  Boats are expensive, and often the most stressful part of a boaters day is the beginning and the end.  That’s because getting the boat in or out of the boat slip with out significant damage to either can be tricky.  This is why many boat owners spend a lot of time and money trying to find the best way to accomplish this!

What’s Available?

There are several choices for protecting your boat for the times it inevitably scrapes against the dock posts.  The cheapest option by far are the plastic dock post bumpers that are readily available at many marine supply stores.  Most cost around $15 or less and are pretty easy to install, EXCEPT you must drill into the dock support structure to mount them.  Drilling into the steel structure weakens the steel however.  While under normal boating and docking this isn’t usually a problem, severe weather or a hard bump can damage the dock post.  This causes damage not only to the post, but possibly to the dock and ultimately could damage the boat.

How About those Vertical Boat Dock Rollers?

Well, let’s see.  They are big and heavy for one.  Do they do the trick? Sometimes.  Thing is they are bulky and expensive and aren’t really designed to roll every time.  Also, the boat, if it hits a vertical boat dock roller tends to hit in the same 6-12″ spot every time.  Why is this important?  Most vertical boat dock are anywhere from 3′-6′ long with either a steel pipe running through them and or a steel mount on both ends.  They are wonky and hard to install.  Additionally, they are expensive.  Anywhere from $500-$700 for a pair.
