GLOVERSVILLE, NY – August 15, 2003 - Taylor Made Products, the leading supplier of boat and dock protection accessories, is now offering a line of mooring whips.


The Taylor Made whips are designed to pull the boat away from the dock by applying continuous variable pressure between boat and dock, while spring lines keep the boat from moving out of position. The proven design provides ample protection under severe conditions, such as boat wakes, winds and tides.


The mooring whips are manufactured from high-quality solid fiberglass, tapered to provide superior strength and the flex action needed to maintain a safe, convenient distance from the dock. Each rod incorporates an exclusive roller tip and whip cleat design that allows for easy retrieval of the boat for boarding and makes tie-off quick and hassle-free.


The dock-mounted whip bases are cast from a super-strong aluminum alloy, which is powder coated to prevent oxidation and keep them looking good for years in the marine environment.

The Taylor Made mooring whips are available in 8-16 ft. lengths for boats ranging from 12-75 ft. and weights up to 72,000 lbs. All models are sold as pairs and include hardware and mooring lines.

Taylor Made Products, a member of the Taylor Made Group®, is one of the largest and most innovative suppliers of marine aftermarket products, including buoys, fenders, boat covers, bimini tops, dock products, flags, pennants and hardware.
