    They look cool. I would just be worried about people falling between the boat and dock when loading.

      Looks like you could make them with a pool noodle and 1 inch PVC pipe inside it

          Seems like you would need another set of ropes to triangulate the position. Otherwise it would push forward (or back) and collapse to the dock. I cannot tell from the picture if there are ropes on the other side of the boat.

            That's the stretch of the river I sometimes boat on. There is approximately a 3mph current away from the dock that already pushes the boat way.

            It does look like they have a bow line keeping the boat from going forward, but I do not see anything on the back of the boat. It's a cool idea, but I'd think it would be pretty hard on the boat if you used it a lot.

                I used something very similar but not that same brand. My dock was a U-shaped slip type of dock. I pulled straight in, hook a short rope on the bow hook then popped two straps onto the center ski pylon (direct drive). Boat was secure in about 15 seconds and never touched the sides of the dock.

                    they've gotta cover Liability Insurance, and handling, etc..... but agreed, too much $$$$$$ per item.

                      Thanks for discussing my product on your forum. I am one of the owners of this company. We produced the first proto-types 12 years ago. We used these units every season and put them through some tough testing. Other than one unit that was stolen, we never had a problem.

                      Docktights are best used on boats less than 25’. They are being used on wakeboats, runabouts, bass and pontoon boats. We designed these for temporary docking situations, however they can be used more long term if conditions allow. For those concerned about the price consider that each unit is hand built and molds were needed for the end cap production. All units are built with the highest quality materials.

                      Feel free to contact me anytime at [email protected] with any questions, or check out our FAQ page here: http://docktight.com/faq
