The TOWDSTER is available in 4 colors, floats if dropped and keeps your watercraft apart from each other without marring any of the finishes. When in motion the expanded rope takes the shock of the waves not your watercraft. Made of heavy-duty polyvinyl, wrapped with high density polyethylene foam sleeve, 12 strand marine rope (7000 lbs. breaking strength) and a heavy-duty snap hook made of solid stainless steel and a solid stainless steel closure with a stainless steel closure spring. All edges are rounded so watercraft will not be scratched. The total diameter is 3" by 8' in length. Easily connects to the eye located on the bow of the watercraft being towed and the towing eyes, cleats or railing on the back of your boat, pontoon, yacht or houseboat.
