Dock Tight boat fenders and Buoy Rope fender mods


Recommended Posts

So there are tons of gimmicky products out there for boaters, and every now and then some of them end up being really useful and worth the investment. I'm looking at Dock Tight boat fenders, and this seems to be a pretty decent idea as a replacement for traditional inflatable fenders. Anyone have experience with these, and how useful are they compared to normal fenders? I was also looking at a product called Buoy Rope.

What works for me.

Exile buoy balls.


Radar dock ties


I made a system similar to docktight's in my slip out of rope & PVC from Home Depot. Costs me about $30 & lasts for a couple years. Pretty basic system really. 3 carabiners & the boat is loose.


BTW, this setup works so well that 4 or 5 other guys on my dock have copied it. Over the years I've changed it a little here & there. The long bow pole is actually 2 pieces of PVC, one smaller diameter inside the other.
