[quote=sailingdog]The ones used on sailboats are square box-like things that have flaps that allow them to move through the water easily in one direction but resist motion in the other. They're designed to help reduce the rolling of boats while at anchor or docked.[/quote]

Yup, what SD said.
Personally I don't see why anyone would use them. If I want to sleep on the hard I'll do it at home.
