What size Big Bumper should I buy?
> The desired length and diameter of a Big Bumper depends on your application. Bumpers are available in 4-foot, 6-foot, and 12-foot lengths.
>12-inch diameter works well for personal watercraft.
>18-inch diameter works well for most boats and reduces the “step over” from watercraft to the dock.
> For dock bumpers, an 18-24-inch diameter is recommended to accommodate variability in the sizes of visiting boats, water levels, etc.
> For a dock or marina, how will the D-rings be attached/tied? Is your dock permanent or floating? What is the length of your boat?
> You may only need two 6-footers spaced apart or a 12-footer positioned based on the curvature of your hull.
> Understand your hull curvature and visualize how it will align with your dock or other boats.
