LineSnubber $59.99

All that tethering, docking and anchoring can give a boat more shocks than it likes to take. The LineSnubber from Davis Instruments reduces a vessel’s shock loads with a tension design that features an internal stretch limiter. It relieves the shock load on dock lines, towing lines, tie-downs and preventers, and also reduces noises and minimizes jarring. When rigged properly, the LineSnubber keeps boats centered in the slip and can be used for tender towing and reducing chafe on dock and anchor lines. Sheathed in nylon webbing, the LineSnubber is sun and abrasion resistant from end to end.
