Even if you docked your boat without incident, it is still vulnerable to rub rail damage and “dock rash” from large wakes trailed by other watercraft. Installing a boat lift may not be a practical or even affordable solution. What to do? OC Boat Supplies stocks a great assortment of mooring whips from Monarch Marine and Dock Edge which will protect your gel coat from scratches, chips, and you from bearing the cost of an expensive repair.
Mooring whips resemble giant fishing poles that are mounted to the dock. These are fixed at specific angles then connected to your boat using adjustable nylon lines. When correctly tensioned, the pole arc downward and “hook” your boat. It is this spring tension that will hold your boat at a sufficient distance from your dock to prevent hard knocks and damage.
Mooring Whips Protect Your Boat’s Finish
OC Boat Supplies has everything you’ll need to install your whips, and will send it out to you the same day you place your order.

Or, consider Taylor Made’s Premium Mooring Whip with Rocker Arm Base. Ideal for larger boats, it is intended for saltwater use and is corrosion-resistant.
