Your first consideration is to take into account the size of the watercraft’s that dock and the height of the dock. Traditionally, if you are out on the open waters and have larger watercraft’s, the Premium PVC products should be used because they have a unique air cushion design that traps air, ensuring maximum protection. For small runabouts, fishing boats and smaller cabin boats, the Standard PVC products are the most versatile and durable. Economy PVC products are commonly installed on docks in low traffic areas. The style of bumper is determined by the height of the dock in comparison to the watercraft’s. On docks where the watercraft deck is above the top of the dock, a top mount profile should be used. Maximum protection can be obtained by installing profiles (without a top lip) vertically every 2-3 feet apart.
