Does anyone have a good fender they suggest to use when tieing up to docks? The lake I live by has a few resturants on the lake that are a blast to go to but all of the docks are very high out of the water catering to pontoon boats. I saw these online and thought that they may work good for a ski boat that is lower in the water but not sure....
Thanks!!

I bought those for my boat and love them. It is almost as though they were made for it.

It seemed like it! Did you get the big or small ones?

I don't think they're exactly the same, but I have these on my shopping list for the boat...

Anyone have anything creative for the swim platform in a dry stack? I have a few bumps and scrapes and I think it is from the forklift. It is killing me. Thought about a large size pipe insulation foam for loading and unloading to cover the edge.

Find the right size and color noodle and slit it down the center. probably need the large size with the large opening.

That is the same thing. They work fantastic. And they are relatively cheap and tough.

Noodles make cheap make-shift guide post covers too.

The one you have pictured is great. There used to be a brand called "Hull Huggr" that was similar. They had one for the center of the boat that was about 4' long.

For what it is worth, I use the "Hull-Hugger" on the same lake and have always tied it to the dock to protect the boat. If I were to buy a new one, I would get the one made for a larger boat, can't have too much protection! They are great and fold-up nicely for easy storage and also work good for rafting-off other boats.
