Mooring Whips: Vessel to Dock Clearance

We are often asked “ What is the optimal range of clearance between my boat and the dock?”
This is a great question which most whip manufactures don’t openly address.
Using deployed standard 14-foot pole sets, the answer is a maximum of 9 feet from the the dock, however we don’t recommend it because your spring lines are less effective. By loosening and adjusting the lines, you can moor your boat as close as 3 feet from the dock. Our patented pivot design allows you to bring your vessel directly to your dock for safe and convenient boarding.
