Tide Slide

I just saw this at a marina today.


Does anyone have any experience with it?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Tide Slide

Our local marine engineering folks who design docks say they are very effective and that those folks who opt for them are extremely satisfied.

Re: Tide Slide

It looks like it would work fine. I've been having good luck with Tideminders (cheaper) same purpose although I can seem some advantages to the Tideslide.

Re: Tide Slide

How about Slidemoor systems instead? I have a situation where I can only put in pilings on one side, and want to be prepared for a hurricane. I apologize if I sidetrack this thread but anyone have experience with that system?
