Dock Whip

Published date: July 25, 2007
  • Boat Type: Boat Type

Where my 26M is docked there's only three mooring points. I got tired of having the starboard stern constantly bumping and rubbing the floating dock. Dock whips can be purchased for lots of money, so I invented my own. It's ugly but it works. 1 1/2" pvc flexible pipe, fittings, rigid pipe, flanges and about 5 ' of 3/4" pipe. Double bungee cords do all the work. The flexible pvc allows fore & aft movement.
