Boat Cradle Guidepost

The Boat Cradle Guideposts are attached to the guidepost stanchion under the cradle. This aids in docking. Made of PVC 1120 type 1 sch 40, the outer tube is 2 3/8 inches in diameter, and the inner tube is 2 inches in diameter. Their PVC material provides durability in various weather.

Wall thickness of about 3/16 inches. The guideposts offer stability and support. The top cap has a 1/4-inch drainage hole for water flow during boat lifting and lowering, enhancing functionality and preventing water buildup.

The top cap, featuring the drainage hole, is ASTM D 2665-certified PVC, meeting industry standards for reliability. Users can easily identify the drainage feature by the 1/4-inch hole in the white cap securely fastened to the end of the white pipe.

These guideposts act as visual aids during docking, guiding boats accurately into the cradle. Their design, along with durable materials and precise engineering, ensures a smooth experience for boat owners and operators.
