Slidemoor was my first experience ever because when I looked at it it made total sense to me I was a non-boater…at the time 5 years ago…My brother decided to join me on my dock and he was using spring lines and I thought he was going to kill himself getting on and off the boat because the tide changes 3 to 5 feet…I had my boat at the repair shop and they took out my drain bolt….We have been having heavy rains in Connecticut forgot to put back…..I just had a custom canopy put on and I was looking great and now the boat sank but I didn’t roll because of the Slidemoor so the slide was really saved me !!!!The extrusion and the rail and the bumpers and the fasteners everything about it is high-level manufacturing they may seem a little pricey , in reality not at all because they’re so well-made and it was such a great job thank you gentlemen!!!

I bought the SlideMoor system about three years ago. I could not be happier. The SlideMoor system does everything that they say it will. The customer service that I received is like nothing I have ever experienced. They do everything they say that they will do in the time that they tell you. I have been a boat Captain for 15 years and I have never done business with a company of this caliber. I would recommend this company to everyone

I highly recommend SlideMoor because it is an effective product and the company stands by it. I had my guys install the system incorrectly and Frank came to Longboat Key to fix it and bring me new ropes. It is rare to see that commitment from any company and I truly appreciate it.

Thank very much for the new SlideMoors. I am amazed at your company’s service. I never would have expected you would provide this level of service and you guys are a prime example of how customer support should be.Thank you again for everything and I will continue to keep showing everyone my SlideMoors and tell them not only how great your product is, but how great your company is.

Used the system this past year and was very worried about 45 mph winds coming through in a late fall storm, handled it with ease. I was amazed no damage and stayed nice and tight to the dock. I am now adding a second system for a 2nd 31 foot boat. The first setup worked so well it was a no brainer. I am very excited to finally have a safe easy and reliable setup in Cape Cod.Best system on the market!

Yesterday's crazy storm that had 80+ MPH winds, causing one-foot waves in the lagoon was proof that I made a great choice with Slidemoor. I watched my neighbor's sailboat bounce around like a bobber. I was afraid it would capsize. My boat gently rose and fell. No tipping, no violent movements. Amazing!!!

At my previous home, I used the Tide Slide system for several years and really had no issues. However, instead of just 2 easy connections at my current dock with the Slide Moor system, I had to attach my boat to 5 different slides to properly secure the boat. In addition, during a storm I added as many as 15 extra lines to pilings and cleats to keep my boat stabilized. I have not yet experienced the effectiveness of the Slide Moor system during a hurricane, but no doubt will at some point in time. From just the short time I have had my system and observed the ease at which my boat glides up and down on the Slide Moor rails, I am confident that it will operate just as well to protect my boat during a storm. Thank You Slide Moore for inventing such a practical, easy to use, and efficient product!

I had tried everything whips, bumpers and even expensive waffle bumpers. One of my expensive waffle bumpers actually burst open from the pressure of the boat against it. The first year I had my boat (2008) it cost me $1,000.00 to fix the damage from banging against the bumpers and dock. Since I purchased SlideMoor I have had no damage at all. I am on my 10th season with SlideMoor. My boat still looks new. I have replaced the rubber bumper once and plan to do it again after this season. I would definitely recommend SlideMoor. It is the only thing that saved my boat from being damaged year after year.

I used to have a 24' boat and was using a boat lift. Everyone loves boat lifts but in my opinion they damage your seawall or dock. I had my boat lift for over 10 years and now my seawall is starting to crack where the lift was installed. Two years ago I installed SlideMoor and have been very satisfied with it! It's GREAT and I would recommend it to anyone who asks. SlideMoor makes it easier for people to board the vessel; made it so I was able to secure my boat when I didn't have pilings for the port side; and it lets me not worry about tides ever! And the qualities of their hardware is top notch. In two years I have never had an issue. I highly recommend SlideMoor if it is a possible set up for you.

During Hurricane Irma, it was nice to not have to worry about how the boat was tied up. The system kept me from having to leave slack in the lines for the storm surge. This allowed me to keep the boat snug to my dock.
Posted on 22nd May 2018
Before SlideMoor I had multiple lines, was experiencing black marks, line chaffing and line clutter on my boat. Now, I love managing (3) lines TOTAL when operating my boat! My boat is always a close step away from the dock and it is much more secure. My boat is docked stern in. I have a SlideMoor on the “hip” tie and conventional bowlines to the dolphins. When I back in, I simply secure the SlideMoor and the bowlines. That’s it! I love it!

Hurricane Irma's eye came within 10 miles of our home in Punta Gorda. At first she emptied the water from the canal system. SlideMoor held my 45' Island Packet in place as she rested on the bottom, winds were no concern. The boat barely moved. Later, when the surge came, SlideMoor simply rode it up. There would have been no way to securely tie the boat with dock lines to account for the 8 foot swing from ebb to flood. It would have left too much slack in the lines. We rode the storm out at home and watched the entire event. I don't do testimonials but this system deserves one. No damage!
Posted on 27th Sep 2017
My 48' SeaRay just went through a direct hit from Irma without a scratch thanks to my SlideMoor's! Thank you for a great product! The insurance companies should discount rates for customers that install SlideMoor's!
Posted on 27th Sep 2017
Just wanted to share with you that my SlideMoor installation totally protected my 37 foot Nordic Tug from 75 mph winds here in Tierra Verde, FL from Irma. Thank you for making such a great product!
Posted on 27th Sep 2017
We have a place down on Marco Island…you might have heard it got hit by a hurricane. Several seasons ago we installed some SlideMoor’s on the dock here because we like to have the boat nearby, it’s easier to work on and it stays cleaner, so we bought a couple of SlideMoor’s, installed them ourselves and have been very happy with them. The reason we purchased them was for our safety to get on and off the boat. As you get a little older you’re not as flexible as you used to be. So you know, we put these SlideMoor’s on and then the Hurricane came by and we were concerned that maybe our boat would be in trouble…..well the good news is it looks like the boat was power-washed! The SlideMoor’s held fast and the boat weathered the storm! There were whitecaps even in our pool so I could imagine it was pretty tumultuous right here by the boat. In the end we are very happy that we purchased the SlideMoor’s and we encourage our friends on the dock here to also put them on because the main thing is getting in and out of the boat and making it safe.

I'm happy to join the SlideMoor Hurricane Survival Team! My 44' Endeavour Trawler Cat came through unscathed! We live in Crystal Beach, FL. Just south of Tarpon Springs!
Posted on 27th Sep 2017
Our boat went through the hurricane (Irma) without any damage. I put out a couple of extra lines, but the SlideMoor worked great!

Our 32 foot Prowler on a SlideMoor after Irma in Marathon. Absolutely unbelievable that she survived.
Posted on 27th Sep 2017
My SlideMoor System saved my pontoon boat during Irma! I had a 360 degree camera in the boat and a cellular connection. I was able to watch the tide rise in real time. You can see the dock completely underwater. Thanks for a great product!
Posted on 27th Sep 2017
I live in Cape Coral, FL. Just wanted to let you know that my boat just went through Irma with no problems! It is a 21 foot Center Console. I had your system installed by Stokes Marine.

SlideMoor is one of the finest products I have ever come across! I do my boating in Chesapeake Bay and keep my boat at the main dock in my marina. I am exposed to the elements but don't want to be anywhere else because of the spectacular views. SlideMoor allows me to stay where I am at. It has worked flawlessly, despite the heavy seas and powerful winds. When you come across a product as good as SlideMoor you want everyone to know about it!
Posted on 8th Mar 2017
We recently had one of your SlideMoor systems installed and it's the best thing since "sliced bread"! What a difference it has made to our boating, it's so much easier to untie and go and return too. It secures the boat so tightly to the dock that the other advantage we never even thought of was that when other boats go by, albeit supposed to be at minimum wake, she hardly rocks at all. We would recommend it to everyone that has a similar dock/boat set up to ours. Thank you for a great product!

I am located on the central east of Florida. We recently endured Hurricane Matthew coming through our area. My 48' Ocean sustained 75-100 mph wind gusts and was secured with SlideMoor. The SlideMoor system held up admirably. I can not stress the ease of use of this product. The boat was held stable against the SlideMoor and moved effortlessly up and down its rail with the tide and waves that occur as other vessels pass by. This is one of the best marine products , I have come across! I highly recommend this system.
Posted on 26th Jul 2016
I am very pleased with my SlideMoor, which was purchased to secure our 46’ Sportfish Catamaran to our dock. A key advantage of the system is that the boat is held securely to the track cushions, and therefore never builds inertia to bang against the mooring. Wakes are handled much better than any method of docking I have previously used. Additionally, using two lines, which quickly attach the boat to the slide tracks make for painless docking with my wife. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants an effective way of mooring on one side.

I love my SlideMoor! I did the install myself and it was very easy. I am so pleased! I have a 4 ft. tidal change and my SlideMoor works great! Walter
Posted on 13th Apr 2016
When I had my new dock installed with a new boat, I was looking for a system that would secure my boat so that I would not have to worry about it when I was not around, SlideMoor fit the bill. I currently have my 18’ Cobia 184115 horsepower on my dock, behind my house, in a creek with three-foot tides. I am only there on weekends so there is no one to check on the boat. I had my boat attached to SlideMoor all season this year for the first time and it worked perfectly. There was nothing to worry about even when the tides were unusually high during a storm or winds. Talk about a great purchase. I would definitely recommended SlideMoor because it is truly a great system that really secures your boat so you don’t have to worry about it!
Posted on 20th Jan 2016
During the storm that hit the Fort Myers area this past weekend my boat did just fine, in fact the water was a foot deep over the dock but my boat just went up and back down. SlideMoor works great!
Posted on 18th Dec 2015
We used SlideMoor to mount a floating dock, the installation was very easy! All we had to do was install the lag bolts and secure the floating dock to SlideMoor. This dock we did the installation on has been in service for 3-4 years and has been maintenance and trouble free. SlideMoor works fabulously!
Posted on 8th Sep 2015
I had the traditional bumpers and numerous dock lines before SlideMoor. Where my boat is moored experiences rough water and on average a 6 foot tide.The SlideMoor system easily handles the rough water and the tidal change and has made docking an easy assignment. It's the only way to go!
Posted on 4th Aug 2015
In the past I just used regular mooring lines and I had issues with adjusting the lines, positioning the boat in the slip, and pulling the boat toward the pier for boarding. Now with SlideMoor, mooring our 60’ trawler is very easy, and the boat is set perfectly every time. I would recommend SlideMoor for simplicity of mooring your boat, and the peace of mind when boarding your boat.
Posted on 2nd Jul 2015
Before SlideMoor I had four pilings and a dock. The pilings were too close causing me not to have enough scope. As a result my boat would hit the pilings at high tide and would be too tight at low tide. When I got my SlideMoor I was able to remove the outside pilings making docking as easy as pulling up to the dock! Now I can hold my 55 ft. Sportfish safely with two lines!
Posted on 2nd Jun 2015
“When I purchased my two oversized 16’ SlideMoors for my Luhrs Nelda Bell I was thinking of the big surge that can happen in the Gulf. With Katrina, we had sustained winds of over 150 mph and a 20 foot surge that destroyed my home, business and all that was in them. I thought I was homeless. As the devastation was assessed, I was completely shocked to see that my boat was the only one to survive in the area! SlideMoor saved our boat and provided us with a home until we were able to get back on our feet.”
Posted on 14th May 2015
"We were using two whips and four lines to moor our boat sideways to the dock. It was time consuming and cumbersome. When our neighbors got boats, we had to switch to a front in docking method due to space restrictions. SlideMoor was the best answer by far. Using the two existing poles, we had the SlideMoor mounted and were able to get rid of the mooring whips. Now we only need two lines to secure our boat! With our SlideMoor we are now able to have easy docking and embarking while using the front docking method. All we have to do is hook up or unhook two lines and we are ready to go. We never have to worry about tide or storms now that the boat is held securely in place. All in all, ease of use and secureness of the boat are what it is all about and SlideMoor gives us the security of both worlds. Our neighbors are happy, we are happy, I would say it’s a win, win situation for all. Why someone did not think of this sooner, I will never understand."

“Before I installed SlideMoor, dock lines and fenders always made it difficult to leave the house for any extended time because I always had to adjust the lines. With SlideMoor I now leave my house with the confidence that the boat will remain secure regardless of tide changes and minor storms. I would absolutely recommend SlideMoor without hesitation. My neighbors admire the secure hookup and ease of operation.”

“The SlideMoor boat docking system has been amazing. I tied my boat up in Marco Island, FL in July and went home to Colorado for 3 months. Upon each return, I find my boat exactly as I left it. I'm also saving thousands of dollars a year not keeping my boat in dry storage. I recommend SlideMoor to anyone looking for a safe, simple, and inexpensive way to keep their boat in the water.”
Posted on 16th Dec 2014
“I've had my SlideMoors for 10 years. What I like the most about the system is once the boat is secure to the SlideMoor it doesn't move, regardless of wind or current. This is a big advantage when high winds would otherwise be pulling, tugging, or snapping lines. Also, I never have to adjust lines for tides and with SlideMoor. Docking is always easy with SlideMoor partly because no fenders need to be set, as the boat never touches the dock. All the issues of conventional tie up go away. Anyone with a permanent dock would love the security of the SlideMoor system.”
Posted on 2nd Dec 2014
“My new boat required a docking arrangement without the use of outboard piles. SlideMoor met the needs perfectly. With SlideMoor it is easy to dock and quick to secure the boat for the night. I would strongly recommend the SlideMoor to my friends.”
Posted on 13th Nov 2014
“Our family has three boats: 44’ Carver, 45’ Chris Commander, 501 Chris Craft. The 44’ and 45’ are kept at a marina and we put the SlideMoor systems to make the docking process quicker. Just two lines and you are secured. The 501 Chris craft is kept on an open river and some boaters are not too courteous and throw a three to four foot wake. SlideMoor handles it easily. In Super Storm Sandy extremely high tides and winds presented no problems to the system when many other boats broke loose. I would recommend SlideMoor because it is easy to tie up and holds the boat securely next to the dock.”
Posted on 23rd Oct 2014
“I have a Nordic Tug 37’ powerboat that I kept on a lift at my previous house. When moving to my new house, the considerations were a bit different. The docks are closer to the water in Cortez, FL than they were in St. Petersburg. I have between 1-3 feet of clearance from the top of the water to the finger pier adjacent to my boat. I selected the SlideMoor system and purchased the tracks long enough to handle a hurricane flood tide. Tying up with the SlideMoor system is very easy. While my wife and I use the boat extensively, when we dock it behind our house I am the only one that ties it down. We use the system with two poles and all I do is tie one off and then the other. I would highly recommend the SlideMoor system to potential buyers. The boat just rides up and down with the tides.”
Posted on 13th Oct 2014
“I purchased the SlideMoor system when I bought my 2006 Mainship 430. Other than a floating dock, no other system would safely manage my boat in tidal changes. I have utilized SlideMoors for seven years now and my boat is always secure and protected. During this time, I have experienced major storm surges, blow out low tides, and occasionally a nearby boater throws a significant wake. Not once have I had the slightest problem. The boat rides up and down, in a smooth and natural motion. At one point, my insurer (AIG) was reluctant to renew my hurricane coverage. I referred the underwriter to your website, and after discussion, they agreed it was an outstanding system. I have been with AIG for all seven years I have owned my boat. I would recommend SlideMoor without hesitation. Once you line up your pilings, exactly with the boat's cleats, the boat is cushioned, secure, and ready to rise or drop with tides, surges, etc.”

“Ten years ago we moved into our Florida home on a canal. Initially we used conventional moorings. The gulf's low winter tides and high spring tides forced us to always be adjusting lines and we often left the lines to loose when a storm came up. After a year of looking for a better and easier way we decided to install the SlideMoor system. We have had two boats since then a 37' and a 42' and the system handled them both without missing a beat. In addition to handling our sometimes big tidal swings the SlideMoor keeps the boat from moving about in bad weather. Our canal runs east to west so any storms off the gulf blow right down the canal. Again, our SlideMoors never missed a beat and protected our boats from wind and rapidly rising water that the storm blew in. My wife has multiple sclerosis (MS) so ease of release when leaving the dock and reconnecting upon return is very important. With SlideMoor we tie them off at the height we expect the boat to be when we leave, and by using the cleats on either side create a loop that she can easily lift off or tie onto the boat cleat on return. We highly recommend SlideMoor to any fellow boater for ease of use, dependable performance, and safely protecting your boat.”
Posted on 11th Sep 2014
“Before SlideMoor I used multiple lines to keep my boat centered in my slip. I had to pull the boat over to the slip edge by hand to get on and off the boat. I had a really bad spill on a rainy day, and almost killed myself when a gust of wind separated the boat from the dock just as I was stepping off. I always had chaffing problems with the aft lines, and was constantly adjusting lines for tides. Not much fun. With SlideMoor docking is now much easier to get on and off the boat. The boat isn't adversely affected by tides or wind any more and is much safer to board. My wife loves it too! SlideMoor is absolutely recommended!! It’s a great concept and well made product. I couldn't be happier with the convenience, safety, and easy use of the system!”
Posted on 27th Aug 2014
“I primarily bought SlideMoor for the severe low tides we get here in Florida in the winter. At those times I can’t use my boat lift. Now with SlideMoor I can just leave my boat in the water with peace of mind, and wait till the tide comes up. I would highly recommend SlideMoor as an easy to use great docking system.”
Posted on 11th Aug 2014
“We have the SlideMoor system on our dock and it’s absolutely wonderful. I wish we had done this years ago! Now our boat isn’t disturbed by the wakes of passing boats, as it simply goes up and down as it would if we had a floating dock. We no longer have to deal with long lines from our boat to our dock to secure it when the tide changes. The boat simply rides up and down with the tides, just as it would at a floating dock. In fact, it is exactly like having my own floating dock and that makes my boat much safer, and less likely to get damaged by rogue boat wakes or major storms. I love it!”
Posted on 17th Jul 2014
“I’ve had SlideMoor for 4 years and it’s simply the easiest and best on the water boat docking system around! I get to the dock, tie up the SlideMoor tight, and I am ready for any type of loading and off loading without any rocking what so ever. The boat simply moves up and down in a steady and predictable manner. I also, no longer care about high or low tides, as with the SlideMoor system, they are not a factor on the way you tie your boat. I recently sold my smaller boat to get a larger one, and the person that bought it wanted the SlideMoor as part of the sale. I simply told him that I was not parting ways with my docking system and the deal was off! He still bought the boat after and I gave him your website so he can get his own. Long story short I love my SlideMoor and I'm an extremely happy customer!"
Posted on 2nd Jul 2014
“Before SlideMoor I was using the conventional 6 lines on my boat in my slip. My boat was subjected to the wind and waves. Now with SlideMoor it's quick to tie up. My boat is 33' and I now use only 2 lines. My boat does not require any spring lines and there is no forward or aft movement. I recommend SlideMoor because it really secures your boat, is easy to install, and easy to use.”
Posted on 16th Jun 2014
“With my 34’ Power Cat tied up to pilings on my home dock here on the Chesapeake Bay, boarding has always been awkward for some of my guests, particularly when the wind is blowing. Then one day in December a couple of years back, as I made the 3' stride from dock to boat, my foot slipped and down I went into the cold water, breaking a couple of ribs along the way. The perfect solution for my two left feet has been the SlideMoor system. The boat is easy to tie up, cast off, very stable, and very easy to access. I should have installed them years ago! SlideMoor's the only way to "park" a boat.”
Posted on 9th Jun 2014
“All the mooring on my pier was either the TideSlide system or the typical four line mooring system. I was looking for something that would be much easier and much more secure than simply using lines. After looking at SlideMoor, I decided this was what I was looking for. I am now securely moored within just two minutes! I simply attach the 2 lines that are already on each slide to the cleat and I'm done. It couldn't be any simpler for securing my 27' Grady White. The price seemed high at first look, but after everything was installed and working, I understood that this system is built to last a long time. I'm impressed and couldn't be happier with the product or the install.”
Posted on 27th May 2014
“Before SlideMoor we struggled to get on and off the boat if the wind was blowing it away from the dock. A 40,000 pound boat is not easy to pull against the wind. Now with SlideMoor the boat is right at the dock and easy to access. I definitely recommend SlideMoor. It makes docking so much easier. Only 2 lines to attach, instead of 4 or more.”
Posted on 30th Apr 2014
“Docking has become easier with SlideMoor having fewer points to secure. I would recommend the system because there are no lines to trip over, no stretching of lines to worry over, or fenders to reset after a strong blow.”
Posted on 22nd Apr 2014
“Before SlideMoor I used 6 lines, two to each stern, midships, and bow cleats. I was always adjusting for the tides, and my boat was far away from dock, which made it difficult to board. Now SlideMoor makes docking a breeze. I just tie two short lines. Even my wife loves it. SlideMoor is a great and worry free system! My boat is always snug to the dock, and it goes safely up and down with the tides.”
Posted on 1st Apr 2014
“I installed the SlideMoor system upon the recommendation from the installer of my dock. His explanation of the system sounded very logical. I've had boats for 45 years and it was my first awareness of such a system. Upon an exceptionally low tide during a tropical depression, the boat grounded while at the dock. The SlideMoor system maintained the boat on even keel and did not allow it to lean either to port or starboard. It just sat gracefully on the wing keel. Needless to say, I've since dredged to keep the boat afloat. I definitely recommend SlideMoor! With only two mooring cleats used it could not be easier to cast off or return to the dock. I also like the stabilization they provide during high wind. There is minimal rocking. ”
Posted on 13th Mar 2014
“I had a 50’ Sea Ray. Due to the local laws my dock capacity was already maxed out and the city wouldn't let me put in an additional 4 pole slip. So I saw this product called SlideMoor and thought I would raft the boat up to the end of my dock, like a transient boat. I did this for 5 years with the Sea Ray, through many storms! I love the product, its been on my dock for 15 years!”
Posted on 12th Mar 2014
“About 8 years ago we had a nasty little hurricane come through called Charley. Prior to that hurricane I had a few clients who met Tom for the first time at the Miami boat show and brought back these rails called SlideMoors and had brought me to their homes to look at installing them. Well At first glance I thought they were awful small for the sized boats we were looking to tie up to them. I didn’t understand the concept of sliders. I’d been in the tug of war game for a lot of years. We installed 3 different sets for 3 different posts. A 52’ boat, a 44’ Catamaran, and a 32’ Sea Ray. The hurricane came through and it devastated this community, with the exception of those 3 boats. The other boats around them suffered dramatically, but the 3 boats on SlideMoor stayed just where they were. Didn’t even twist their pilings. We were kind of flabbergasted. From that day forward we started making it a priority where if you weren’t going to put your boat up on the lift where it can be secured you need to be on SlideMoors. This solved two problems. One it anchored the boat close to the dock, which all the customers loved. And it eliminated those pesky navigational hazards called out pilings, which are always where you don’t want them. Today our business practice is pretty simple. If you’re not going to put the boat on the lift you need to tie it up to SlideMoors.”

"The SlideMoor Floating Dock Bracket is a great product. Our application allows us to increase the fairway width by using the SlideMoor system. In addition, we were able to use a narrower floating dock. The SlideMoors stabilize the dock much better than traditional piling hoops."
Posted on 10th Feb 2014
"Before SlideMoor I would use multiple tie up lines in a traditional slip. The mooring lines would become too tight due to extreme tides. This caused chafing on the lines as well as the boat and outboard. Now with SlideMoor it is much easier to get in and out because I no longer have to grasp for lines or jump to the dock. The tide surge now has no effect and with 10 foot tracks hurricane worries are a thing of the past. I absolutely recommend SlideMoor. It’s simply the best system on the market. There is no other answer for narrow slips or large tide variations. "
Posted on 29th Jan 2014
"This is a new purchase so we did not have a mooring system. On our other boat we use a line and cleat on piling system. You had to ensure the correct length of line to account for tides, which caused problems getting on or off the boat. SlideMoor keeps the boat tight to the dock during tidal changes. It has been great. They meet all our expectations. We recommend SlideMoor's because they make docking so much easier and provides safety for getting on and off the boat. I am a handicap person so SlideMoor allows ease in getting off and on the boat. I do not have to check the boat due to excessive tide changes."
Posted on 16th Jan 2014
“I purchased a 56' Sunseeker in Florida, and the yacht club where the boat was docked already had the SlideMoor system installed. After using the SlideMoor system in Florida for a couple of months we moved the boat to Maryland and I then had to deal with six dock lines every time we used the boat. It was time I installed the SlideMoor. What a great system! My pier is on a river off the Chesapeake Bay, and at times we can get two-feet of chop and heavy boat traffic. We installed three SlideMoor's and they work great. I'm the owner of a Machine Shop and I can assure you the SlideMoor system is built right. I can't find a way to improve anything.”
Posted on 23rd Dec 2013
“When docked at my home, the passing boat traffic used to make life miserable. Staying upright and calm enough to not be tossed around inside the boat was near impossible. This was before SlideMoor. The SlideMoor 2 tie only system is better than perfect. I never hear my wife cursing. It's a godsend and a truly heaven sent product! Keeps marriages on a good ‘boat footing’.”
Posted on 9th Dec 2013
"SlideMoor has provided me with the increased security in the event of a storm. It’s a fairly priced, quality product that has performed the past year as stated. Absolutely works as described."
Posted on 20th Nov 2013
“Before I had the SlideMoor system docking was difficult as I had to parallel park the boat along the pier after threading through my outer pilings. The SlideMoor units were purchased as part of a refresh for my 37-year-old pier. We replaced our 25' Parker with a 34' Mainship Trawler and needed a simplified docking solution. SlideMoor met and exceeded my expectations. I now come into my canal, spin 180, and slide the boat sideways to the SlideMoors. Just two lines to secure and the boat is fixed in place!”
Posted on 11th Nov 2013
“SlideMoor is a trustworthy system for securing my boat without having to worry about keeping the boat from getting caught under a stationary dock with the rise and fall of the tides.”

“I’m on my third installation with the SlideMoor System. Obviously, I am quite pleased with the way they work. I single-hand my 60' SeaRay frequently, and this makes docking much easier. It also allows me to bring the boat much closer to the dock for easy boarding of my dog and guests. It’s working great for me.”

“As the tide comes and goes, the boat remains tight against the pilings as it moves up and down. The SlideMoor system is popular here in Punta Gorda. In Hurricane Charley, boats secured with the system fared better than those secured in other ways!”

“Before I bought a pair of the 24” SlideMoor PLUS I used ropes on all sides of the boat requiring 2 people to dock. Now with SlideMoor I only have two places to tie-up to and I can do it by myself! One time I forgot to untie the stern SlideMoor unit when backing out with my 480 SeaRay motor yacht. The stretch event broke a part of the dock lengthwise, but the SlideMoor held firm. Any concerns about the strength of the SlideMoor are put to bed!”

"For years we were using bow and stern lines along with spring lines. Our primary problems were surges in the channel where we dock. The surge issue made it difficult to judge the proper length of line required for mooring properly. We were hoping to alleviate the concern of the water surges, and that’s when we found and installed SlideMoor, which has more than met our expectations. Now the worries over water height fluctuations and the possibility of lines snapping have gone away. We did have a surge of about 18 inches in early summer and our boat was secure during the entire episode with SlideMoor! Others were constantly adjusting their lines. I would most assuredly recommend using SlideMoor! The peace of mind is well worth the purchase."

“SlideMoor is truly awesome and is clearly the best on the market! My boat is always in the same place. No more stepping on and having the boat move away from the dock. It is SOOOO much easier to dock when I am alone too. It is a very clever invention. I am most amazed that everyone doesn't use it.”

"Prior to SlideMoor I had a boat lift that was attached to a floating dock. The wave action from the boat traffic was so excessive that it caused the lift to bounce side to side violently. The boat lift literally was destroyed one Memorial Day weekend from the 4' waves caused by the boat traffic. Based on the product information on the website I figured I could add an arm to the boat lift and attach it to the SlideMoor system to eliminate any side-to-side action of the lift without compromising it still going up and down. Since the lift was repaired and SlideMoor was installed I have gone two years without an issue. I could not have asked SlideMoor to perform any better. The system works flawlessly!”

“I would suggest SlideMoor strongly. We have enjoyed working with the SlideMoor team and they even offered to let us use their booth at an upcoming boat show. We appreciate the support!”

“The SlideMoor system is the next best thing to a floating dock; ours has given us no trouble and excellent service in a hostile environment (about 500’ downwind of ocean beach) and has survived 3 hurricanes during the past few years!” Steve Dodge Publisher: The Cruising Guide to Abaco, Bahamas He has been doing research and writing on the history of the Bahamas for over 30 years!

“The SlideMoor system has exceeded all my expectations and really takes away all my worries. Before I bought my SlideMoors I was tied to a concrete floating dock using 5 lines and 2 fenders. Now I tie my 37’ Nordic Tug to my fixed dock using just 2 SlideMoors and NOTHING else. It looks so clean, and now I can store all my lines and fenders, keeping them out of the damaging Florida sun. I love it!”

"Last night we had high winds with a rainstorm and the boat barely moved. With conventional lines, it would have been quite a 'dance'."
