Why Choose WhamGuard Boat Dock Rollers?
PODCAST TRANSCRIPT (modified) The WhamGuard rotating boat dock rollers are unique to the market and what makes them unique is the way they work. WhamGuard Rotating Bumpers don’t have any exposed steel that could potentially damage your boat when your docking. Everything is self-contained inside. These boat dock rollers are made of marine grade polyethylene on the outside, and a bushing that holds it in place on the inside. The WhamGuard Rotating Bumper has two hemispheres and clamps around that bushing on your post of your doc and rotates around until you’ve got a boat dock roller that actually rolls it actually rolls.
Why is WhamGuard Better Than Other Boat Dock Rollers?
So how is the WhamGuard boat dock roller different? First, you can place the WhamGuard rotating bumper anywhere on your dock on the post. It is recommended that you place it where most likely you are going to hit when you’re bringing your boat in. WhamGuard Rotating Bumpers are a hemispherical shape, so just think of a a ball and moon globe thats on your dock! Well, that’s a very strong shape! So when you hit the wham guard, your hitting in a high-strength area to keep you off that post and also with the the unique bushing different than any other dock roller out there, it actually rotates you into your slip.
Boat Dock Rollers Should Roll!
So traditional boat dock rollers are not able to accomplish that after while, like said that they deform and they don’t have the surface area to continue spinning. So the WhamGuard rotating bumper has a lot more surface area that actually spends. So if I am wanting to purchase some WhamGuard rotating bumpers, what are some things that I need to know? First, will?
Before Puchasing a WhamGuard Rotating Bumper:
The first thing you need to know is what type of the post you have on your doc. So, typically, when you’re bringing in your boat to the slip that outside post, you need to measure those that support your roof and typically they’ll, be there 2 in wide a two by two or two and a half by two and a half wide. So just get those measurements there inmake sure we get the right bushing in the bushing comes in that two pieces and it just clamps around your post and there’s four bolts and nuts that both that bushing together and then there’s another four bolts and nuts that you put the bumper surrounding the the bushing and that allows the bumper to rotate on your post doesn’t sound like it’s very hard to install it’s very easy to install takes about the anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to install the WhamGuard boat dock rollers.
Installing a WhamGuard
So when I am going to be installing a winegard rotating bumper, where am I going to put it on my post? Well, you want to measure the widest part of your boat, find out where the widest part of your boat is in relation to the waterline so measure from the water line up to the the widest part of your boat. And then you want to center the winegard rotating bumper at that that position. If you have a boat that that is higher in the front and tapers downthe back, you may need two sets of WhamGuard. If you find out it’s not in the right position. It’s very simple:to loosen everything up position it correctly and then also you can keep adding more WhamGuards.
WhamGuard Installation v. Vertical Boat Dock Rollers
Vertical boat dock rollers out come in 4-6 foot lengths. However, most people aren’t hitting in a 6-foot area. WhamGuard Rotating Bumpers cover 13 and 1/2 in. This is about the range that people tend to run into things, as is that 13 and 1/2 in? But if you find out that you’re in real rough water and that you’re bouncing up and down when you come in, you can buy another WhamGuard Roatating Bumper and then you’ve got basically 30 in covered versus the 72 in. With most vertical boat dock rollers you’re paying a lot per square foot that you’re never use. The longer that roller is probably the weaker it is, it does goodwill in many people, know the the principles of leverage.
Why WhamGuard Rotating Bumpers work Better
If you hit one end of the traditional boat dock roller and it typically wants to move the other end. If you go around many of the lakes that have docks with vertical boat dock rollers on them, you’ll see many of them are crooked. The top will be pointing one way and the bottom the other. That’s because you have the leverage of the boat hitting in one area and pushing the roller another direction. So then nothing’s parallel or straight up and down plum. The roller is offset then, and it doesn’t operate like it was intended to. So how does that work for protecting your boat? One of one of the great things about a WhamGuard Rotating Bumper is it cannot get crooked. It is surrounding the post, so there there’s nothing that can prevent it from actually rotating and still acting as a bumper. Since the bumpers spin they act as a guide when you’re bringing your boat in.
Where do I Position a WhamGuard boat dock roller?
Do you need to put them on any other post besides the entryway well with white board boats there in boardpowered? Whenver you are docking a wakeboard boat and you cut the power as you’re bringing the boat in, you lose your steering for that that type of inboard boat. For wakeboard boats, we do recommend that you continue installing WhamGuards into the interior the slip and putting them on additional post. This makes sure you don’t damage your boat when you’re bringing it in that way. So if you want a boat dock roller, that really works, you want to get WhamGuard rotating bumpers. That’s right!
