    Protecting your machine from dock damage

    Hey everyone,

    New to the forum, but I have been looking for a solution to docking which will ensure my machine doesn't get scratched from sitting at the dock and I am not particularly high on paying about $100 for the new spark bumpers as I think they are overpriced and you need to drill into the side rail.

    What do you think about this idea? It's a mounting bracket that can hold a regular small boat fender or other products like hull hug'r in place without moving around. It has a housing component that the bracket slides into so it has the ability to detach if necessary. It can also be used with and without the cover. So far it seems to stay in place without rolling out of the way, keeping your machine protected.

    Hello surfcitypops,

    I actually designed this myself and had it made. Im wondering if people would be interested in this. A cheaper alternative that would work. Thanks for the reply. Appreciate it.

    Hello raceneked,

    Im still working on the design for the newer models as its a little tricky with how they've designed the side rail, but I'm determined to get it right. I feel if the bracket is right the traditional 4.5x16 bumper would work as well as with other products. I will keep you posted.

    I just tie it temporarily to a pole, it never rubs or hit's the pole since the wind will keep it away. At night it goes on the trailer.

    Hello slope,

    I've anchored it in the past during the day. But if I go to town, or a friends place and tie at the dock I have a problem. I'm always trying to find an area where no waves will effect it. At night at my place, I have a lift to keep it out of trouble. My idea is to allow people to tie there machine up wherever they want to go.

    I want to provide people with an inexpensive solution.
