For boaters with runabouts and daycruisers who aren’t able to hang enough fenders on the side of your boat, you can secure vinyl strips to your dock edge to protect your hull from the edge of the dock.
These products are available in many, many shapes and configurations.
The best one we have found is a “P” shaped extrusion that screws to the top of the dock and to the vertical edge of the dock and the loop of the “P” protrudes slightly above the dock surface to protect the hull.
They are manufactured of vinyl with fungaside and UV protectant.
Give your dock the finishing touch when you install the “P” strip using joiners and end pieces. To determine if you need a left or right hand, stand on the dock looking down at the water. Joiners and ends give the strip a continuous look, but aren’t necessary.
The vinyl “P” extrusion measures 3 ¾” high x 2 3’4” wide. Each strip is 8’ long.
The manufacturer recommends you secure it to a wooden dock with 1″ #8 screws using #10 cup washers–not included.
