Listen up, folks: Even the most experienced boater occasionally has trouble getting into a slip, and all it takes is one brush up against the dock to leave a nasty mark on your boat’s hull. Nautical Concept’s Roller Post should help give skippers added protection against such nicks and scratches.

The company says installation is easy. Roller Post’s heavy-duty, polyvinyl-chloride rollers attach vertically to pilings with steel mounting brackets. (Check with your marina manager before drilling any holes.) Each roller is 4 1/2 inches in diameter and is available in 38-, 48-, or 60-inch lengths (custom lengths can also be ordered). They even come in three variations to fit round or square wooden pilings or tubular canopy slips.

Roller Post is covered by a three-year limited parts-replacement warranty and sells for $119 to $150 (excluding shipping and handling charges) depending on the size and type.
