By using breast and spring line to hold the tender in place. The leverage created by the bending of the mooring whip pole, holds and keeps the tender a safe distance away from the side, or swim platform of the larger vessel.

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 which can be easily stored. The flush bases eliminate tripping or catching of lines on board.
During the building stage, many large yacht builders contact us for recommendations on where they can incorporate sockets for the mooring whip poles. In these cases we are happy to supply the proper size mooring whip poles.
