Product Description
dockmate The Wake Watchers Mooring System is an innovative way to protect your boat and dock while mooring. The adjustable tension allows your boat to move up and down with wakes and waves, resisting vertical, horizontal, and lateral movement while holding your boat at a safe distance from the dock. Boarding is simple -- just pull in one of the arms and board. Release the arm and your boat automatically repositions itself away from the dock. Start the motor, untie the two ropes allowing the arms to retract, and you're on your way. Made with a baked enamel powder coat to resist weather and corrosion. Complete with hardware, rope, and reflective decals. For boats up to 3,500 lbs. System is designed for use on inland lakes and rivers. If used in tidal areas, a strong floating dock is required.

    Comments about Dockmate Wake Watchers Mooring System:

    I am using the Wake Watcher on the open water of the Bay of Green Bay where we have a lot of wind driven water level changes and deep, short waves due to the shallow nature of the bay. It has been in place now for about two weeks and so far it has worked great for us. This was a good choice for the conditions we experience; easy to board and keeps my 18 foot duck hunting boat away from the dock so that it can rise and fall with the waves and water level changes without damage to the boat or dock.

          Very easy to put togather and install. Took about 1 hour from the time I opened the box until they were installed and in use. I live on a narrow busy lake and they work perfectly. I recomend these to anyone looking for whips. I think they look better and are much easier to use.

          I had a chance to see it in use before I ordered it. I ordered it and it came quickly. I put them together in fifteen minutes and the nest day my son and I installed them in another fifteen minutes. We tied the ropes off with tension and it works great. I think I am going to find two proung hooks that with tension will be easy to connect and disconnedt to the boat cleats. We really like them and will probably order a second set in the near future for a pontoon.

            Is it true that this product does not come with bolts?

              A:

              Assmebly hardware IS included. Mounting hardware, however, is not. This is due to the variety of possible mounting requirements for all the different dock types.

              Answered on 7/2/2014 by Anonymous
          • Q:

            Can you slip the vertical support post (it must be hollow) over a secured deck pole and then bolt or use metal screws to secure it to the pole? Can you give me the inner dimensions of the vertical support post on the Dockmate system? I can't drill into or modify my dock and this system would be perfect if it had that ability. I know it would be a modification to the system. Thank you.

              This is not recommended as it would interfere with the cushioning process and void any warranties.

            I have a 21' pontoon boat docked on a lake that typically has about 1' waves. Occasionally the waves may be 2 to 3 feet for a period of a day or two. Will the wake watchers work for me?

              A:

              I would not recommend this product for waves of that height. If you are on the Pamlico River, I think this system would work fine for you. If you did see an increase in wave action, due to a Hurricane or Tropical Storm, I would either anchor the boat away from any structure, or pull it out of the water.

              Thats a sizable drop, but this should work, but you will have to adjust the lines attached to the boat to a longer length.

          • Q:

            Will this product work with a floating dock? The dock moves up and down with the water. Would it be better to position the boat on the side of the dock or the front?

              These are really made to be placed on a non floating dock. I cannot say that these will perform perfectly on a floating dock.

              These will work well on a floating dock. Mount on either front or side.
