Boat Fenders by Big Bumper Co.
First of all — THANK YOU for visiting our site, and if you have purchased ( or are thinking to buy one of bumpers)…we thank you again!
We are fairly new … only about 2 years in offering our unique line of quick to inflate / deflate bumpers. Over this time we have learned a lot, and want to be the best resource for protecting your boat - whether moored at a dock or tying up with another boat out on the water. A magazine editor for an upcoming article queried this question - " what is the most frequently asked question we receive?”
Well - that's easy. By far, the most common question focuses on how to determine which sized bumper is best for your boat. Here are important factors to consider:
. is your primary use to be tying up with other boats, or protection while docked?
. do you have sport or ski boat, or a medium yacht / sailboat? This point can help determine if your application will be horizontal or vertical. And perhaps not even in / touching the water
. are you located in the south, or in the north / midwest? Inflation & pressure considerations may be different
. what type of hull does your boat have? A pontoon differs from ski boat in hull design & curvature… this is very important
.Be sure to visualize the application most likely for your inflated bumper. When possible, send us a photo of your boat and we can help in your bumper selection. Remember we have 2 diameters… 18" and 24”…the use application will dictate the best size to order.
Even though these bumpers are tough, we want to be sure your selection is best suited to protect your boat investment!
