What To Look For In Boat Fenders and Bumpers

When looking for boat fenders, you need to make sure you find some that not only hold the boat in place (in other words secure it to the dock), but also prevent the boat from hitting the dock.

One of the main reasons boat owners get so frustrated is because the fenders and bumpers they purchase for their boats or jet ski’s do a good job securing the boat, but when big waves come in, the boat will actually hit the dock which causes damages.

So what can you do?

That’s where Docktight boat bumpers come in.  These bumpers are designed in a way to effortlessly dock your boat (which we will talk about in another post), and they also do a great job at keeping your boat from hitting the dock.

With that said, these fenders and bumpers are a bit more expensive than your ordinary ones, but trust me when I say that they will likely save you a lot of money in the near future because you won’t have to keep taking your boat in to fix the damages that occur when the boat hits the dock.

You also need to keep in mind that these were designed for boats under 20 feet, if your boat is over 20 feet you should contact the Docktight company BEFORE you make your purchase just to make sure they will work for your boat.  There is a good chance they will, it would just be a bummer to purchase them and find out they don’t work.

These fenders were also designed to float unlike their competition.  That means if you happen to drop them (which will more than likely happen), they won’t sink.

This is still a relatively new company and they are still making changes to their product and improving upon it, but all in all these are starting to become a must own for every boat owner out there.

If you are a serious boat owner don’t even think twice about purchasing yours today.
