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.

    Simple to blow up, just fasten a line to it and secure it. It provides a floating soft protection barrier or marker for you boat.

          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.
