Mooring whips

Here at Great Northern Docks, we often suggest using mooring whips to keep your boat held off the dock. The boat may bump the dock on occasion but the whips prevent constant bumping. Spring lines are used to keep the boat in line with the dock so the whips remain perpendicular to the edge. Holding the boat off the edge of the dock will protect both the dock and the boat.

Although whips do come with their own base for mounting to the decking, we make a base (Goose Neck Whip Brackets) that can attach to the side of our docks to work as an alternative base for the whips we sell.

Goose Neck Whip Bracket Advantages :

Goose Neck Whip Bracket
  • Height adjustable to allow taller boats beneath
  • No deck space interference
  • Decking can still be removed
  • Frame is a much stronger place to mount whips
  • Snaps on to our Dura-LITE frames
  • Bolts to our wood and Feather-LITE docks
  • Guardian post bumpers can be attached for more protection.


Guardain Bumpers on Dura-LITE

The Guardian Bumpers can be mounted to the Dura-LITE dock legs or snapped to the frame as a vertical or horizontal bumper where boats are tied up.


Guardian Bumpers on Wood Docks

Guardians work well for keeping boats from drifting beneath the dock. The curved back side fits snug on round pilings and mounts to flat surfaces. Mount them to a 2×6 or on your 4×4 post legs for a vertical bumper and mount them along the side for a horizontal bumper.
The guardian is available with a pipe bracket that fits 1/78″ O.D. pipe legs (Industry standard pipe referred to as 1.5″ schedule 40 galvanized pipe).

Cleats

Cleats can be attached to our Modular Plastic Docks (MPDs), our Feather LITE & Dura-LITE extrusions and our wood docks.
