Anyone know where I can get an inflatable dock bumper in the US? My local ski club has one and it really protects the boat against the concrete dock. 12 inches round, about 15 feet long, floats on the water and is tied to the dock.
Cant find them anywhere!

Google "inflatable boat fender" and there are several sites that have them in several different configurations.
Here is just one of many, http://nuovarade.com/boat-fenders.htm

Sorry to bring up again this old thread....

Like Rallyspitman, I was looking for some huge inflatable dock bumpers to protect my boats from damage at the dock.

I found now somebody who is selling them in Europe, I don't know if they ship to the US as well. I contacted them, but they are not ready for any shipment before January, they didn't even finish their website: http://www.bigfender.com

I'll check back then and will update my post here.

Greetz from Italy,

Not sure if you guys are looking for long term docking solutions or short term, but if you guys are looking for something that rocks and takes up zero space try hippity hop balls from Toys R Us or any toy store.


All of our crew rock these. Perfect for tie ups at party cove/sandbar and docks. inflate and deflate in seconds.
