SlideMoor is a docking system for both boats and yachts, modular jet ski ports as well as floating docks that bring together many of the advantages of a floating dock with the appeal of a traditional fixed dock. The system makes docking safer and easier while mitigating the risks associated with tidal change, wind, wake, and wave activity.
This simple yet effective system secures your boats tightly to a sliding bumper on one side only. SlideMoor takes the guesswork out of tying up your boat and can stabilizes your jet ski port or floating dock.
Truly the evolution of boat docking solving many of the docking and mooring issues encountered by boaters.
Mooring whips are flexible fiberglass poles used to hold a boat off a dock to prevent damage to the boat or dock. Also known as boat whips or dock whips, they were originally designed to counter the effect of changing tides, boat wakes, and wind driven waves. Mooring whips use tension to hold the boat at a safe distance from the dock and their flexibility allows some movement of the boat due to tidal changes. Boat whips have a number of applications in the docking industry, but are generally used for smaller boats. Mooring whips were a major innovation for boat docking systems and these boat whips have been a fixture in the boat docking industry for over half a century.
Yes! The Slidemoor system is the next stage in the evolution of docking systems. SlideMoor takes the guesswork out of tying up your boat, solving many of the docking and mooring issues encountered by boaters. SlideMoor works much the same as a floating dock. It secures your boat tight with two lines on one side only, eliminating bumping, banging, and other damaging movements. SlideMoor allows your boat to move securely up and down through waves, wind, and tides.
SlideMoor’s Low Stretch Lines are double braided, marine grade nylon with Dacron centers available in both 5/8” and 3/4” diameters. When used properly, they will keep your vessel tight to the SlideMoor bumpers and will not stretch excessively over time.
The SlideMoor RacheTite is a stainless steel, self-contained ratcheting winch that replaces one of your two SlideMoor Slide cleats and simply and easily increases tension to your dock lines while tied to the SlideMoor unit. The RacheTite features a spring-loaded locking detent that solidly clicks with each adjustment ensuring that your vessel remains tight to the SlideMoor bumper.
The SlideMoor RatcheTite is designed to end the destructive lateral movement of the vessel while tied to the SlideMoor Docking System due to loose lines. The mechanical advantage provided by the RatcheTite makes that easy. The RatcheTite simply replaces one of the two existing cleats on the SlideMoor Slide.
The RacheTite is easily retrofittable to any SlideMoor System and is designed to take up any slack in the line by simply turning a small lever on the side of the Slide. Simply remove one of the two SlideMoor Slide cleats and replace it with a RacheTite bolting it using the existing cleat mounting holes. Each RatcheTite comes pre-strung with a 5/8” double braided marine grade Low Stretch dock line. Simply run the dock line around your vessel’s cleat and tie it off tightly to the other side of the SlideMoor Slide. Now you’re ready to adjust any slack in the line while tied to the SlideMoor Slide.
The RatcheTite comes equipped with a preinstalled SlideMoor Low Stretch dock Line. RatcheTite’s are only designed to be used with this special dock line. Should it become necessary to replace the line, contact All About SlideMoor for guidance.
