Boat Cradle Guidepost
The boat cradle guideposts are attached to the guidepost stanchion on the bottom of the boat cradle. The diameter of the outer tube is 2 3/8 inches and the inner tube is 2 inches in diameter. The tube is made from PVC 1120 type 1 sch 40. The wall thickness of this tube is approximately 3/16 inches. To allow water to drain when lifting and lowering the boat, the top cap is drilled with a 1/4-inch diameter hole. It is made of ASTM D 2665-certified PVC. The drain hole can be found in the white cap that is attached to the end of the white pipe.
The guidepost bumpers are optional. With the bumpers, it is easier to see the guideposts when entering or exiting the boat slip.
