What are mooring whips? Also referred to as dock whips, these docking aids are an alternative to boat davits and lifts as well as an efficient and cost effective way to protect your vessel from dockside and seawall damage. With one end fastened to the dock and the other connected to a cleat via dock line, mooring whips protect your boat from scratches, dents, and other damage by pulling your boat away from the dock. The distance creates a buffer that keeps your boat from bumping against the dock and protecting against waves, wind, wakes, and other harsh conditions. Overton's carries a wide selection of mooring whips, mooring rings, mooring arms, and other accessories from top brands such as Dockmate and Taylor Made in assorted sizes.
