TideMinder Kit ( set of 9 balls or Single ) Black or White
The TideMinder ® system protects boats by controlling dock lines (up to 1" diameter) in tidal waters / storms and is simply amazing. TideMinders are a highly durable string of "pearls" that protect lines against fouling and chafing.
As the balls roll up and down, they offer constant tension with built in shock absorption. Tideminders eliminate the need to constantly adjust lines during storms and tidal changes. They also allow you to have shorter dock lines, keeping your boat closer to the dock for easier boarding (most boats can be kept as close as 6" to 8" from the dock with TideMinders).
If you do have a floating dock, TideMinders® enhance the protection of your boat, smooth out the rocking and make it easier to board (these are a must-have for live-a-boards).
If you don't have a floating dock, TideMinders® are a cost-effective solution. With TideMinders, your line will simply roll up and down the piling automatically as forces demand, dissipating the energy naturally.
