    I had 2 of these rupture within their first 2 months of use. I have a 240 SeaRay that they are supposed to protect together with mooring whips. They only get squeezed under severe wind and with great cushioning by the whips. So needless to say when they deflate you suddenly have nothing protecting your vessel.

          This product can be used to protect your boat when docking, and can also be used as flotation for the end of the anchor rope when fighting a big fish. It makes it easy to came back for your anchor or shut later.

                  Our houseboat has side decks that extend 18" from the hull sides. I fastened these to the dock and they keep the boat the perfect distance from the dock.

                      A:

                      Inflate these with a compressor pump similar to filling up a water toy. It is a screw valve not the regular needle valve.
