boatguard mooring whips with detail

GLOVERSVILLE, NY – March 18, 2005 - Taylor Made Products has announced the introduction of a new line of value-priced mooring whips.


Sold under the BoatGuard® brand, the economically priced mooring whips are ideal for smaller boats on lakes and other protected waters.  The whips consist of large-diameter solid fiberglass poles designed to provide the spring action needed to keep the boat safely away from the dock, and a newly redesigned whip base made of injection molded high-impact reinforced composite for strength and durability.


The BoatGuard whips, which retail beginning at $190.00, are sold as pairs and include all lines and hardware to complete the installation.  They are available in 8, 12 and 14 ft. sizes for boats up to 25 ft.


“Taylor Made is solidifying its position as the number one supplier of mooring whip products,” said David Karpinski, vice president, sales and marketing. “The BoatGuard value products are a natural extension of our growing product line.”
