Dock Skid Plate
Category: Kayak, canoe, small boat, raft, water entry
Problem: I have vinyl rub rails around my dock that are secured with nails. I noticed it was difficult to slide my canoe in and out of the water off the dock and when I moved the craft over the rub rail the nails would be working loose.
Action: I had a dock upright hard vinyl strip bumper that had floated into my cove from someone’s dock. Since it was slippery, I decided to place it along the edge of the dock where I launched my canoe.
Result: It works Great!
