Tender whips are available in three standard sizes for tenders weighing up to 4500 kg. Customised kits are also available for tenders weighing up to 22,000kg. All mooring whip systems come complete with solid fiberglass poles, roller tips, whip cleats and whip line. The roller tips and whip cleats are made of non-marking nylon. The coupler is made of fiberglass. Two stainless flush bases with mounting hardware and installation instructions complete the kit.
The stainless flush mounts can be installed on swim platforms, deck, or rub rails, depending on the preferred location of the tender. The poles come in two pieces so can be easily stored on board. The flush bases eliminate tripping or catching of lines on board. Breast and spring lines are to be used to hold the tender in place. The leverage created by the bending of the mooring whip pole, keeps the tender a safe distance away from the side of the boat, or swim platform of the larger vessel.
During the building stage, many large yacht builders are in need of recommendations on where they can incorporate sockets for the mooring whip poles. In these cases, the proper size mooring whip poles can be specified and supplied. Complete tender whip kits can be supplied as an after market item, along with additional flush bases and poles as required.
