Product Description
dockmate Dockmate Mooring Whips are an excellent way to protect your boat or watercraft from damage caused by wind or high wake. These whips provide a "safety zone" between dock and boat with a unique "spring action" that keeps your boat away from the dock. The large diameter solid fiberglass rods are wrapped with cross-wound layers of fiber for superior strength and flexibility. The durable solid cast-aluminum base has a molded-in cleat and ring to easily fasten your lines. A functional roller tip on the whip in addition to a unique tensioner allow easy one-hand operation. Deluxe 12' Whips offer a "plug and play" design for quick and easy separation of the two whip halves for storage. All Dockmate Mooring Whips come as a pair with all necessary lines and hardware to complete installation. Note that some docking conditions may be too rough for this type of system. 3-year warranty.

    We put the whips on the boat on Sunday and don't get back until Friday night and it has eased our worry about the boat hitting the dock and damaging it.
    GREAT PRODUCT. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND THEM TO ANYONE ON A LAKE.

    We had a freak storm come through the lake and snapped the whips off at the base during the day while we were gone. $ 3,500 in boat damage and the answer from the manufacturer was to purchase new whips. The boat is 3500lbs and the whips were for 5000lbs. For the cost of repairs we could have purchased a lift (which we did after the fact). These may be OK if you are around during the day but don't count on them to protect your boat if the weather changes.

        I quickly installed the mooring whips with only a phillips screw driver, pliers, and open end wrench. Once installed, I used the illustrations in the directions to guide me on the proper way to tie off boat. Big waves no longer a threat to docking my guest's boats to my dock.

          These whips are great!! They're easy to install and do a great job of keeping my boat away from my dock in rough water conditions. If you have a dock that is exposed to rough water, these whips are for you. Watch the video on Overton's web site then go do your installation it's that easy.

              Assembly was delivered as advertised. Only mounting hardware included was for installation on a wooden dock. I had to buy some stainless steel hardware to install on my aluminum dock. included instructions were useful and installation was a snap. Even though their were earlier comments that indicated a lack of mooring lines, there were ample lines included for the whips, the bow and stern lines as well as the spring lines to tie up my 20' boat. I am happy so far with these whips.

                I know the whips give a cushion to the side of the boat, but do they restrict front/back movement as well? I get motion in all four planes.

                  The instructions will show you how to attach lines to the dock. You use a diagonal line from the back whip base to your boat's front side cleat and another diagonal from the front whip base to the rear side boat cleat. The combination of the whips and the diagonal lines prevent front to back motion of the boat.

                  The 12ft premium whip should work fine for you, but if you are concerned about the wake and winds, you may consider moving to our Ultimate whip (item 74608)

                  A:

                  Yes, these are sold in pairs. For a 21' pontoon boat you should be ok with item 74607 but you will need to check the weight of the boat and motor to make sure it is under 5,000 lbs.

                  Please remember that some docking conditions may be to rough for a whip type mooring system.
