    Default Where to buy bumpers, anchor, etc?

    Any suggestions on where to buy the less than exciting essentials, and what type?

    I was looking at getting the low profile bumpers from Barts that are "ideal for ski boats" but didn't know if anyone had other suggestions or thoughts, or if it matters.

    this is the boring stuff I know but I appreciate it.

    on bumpers, you may wanna try to find somewhere local... west marine, Academy, bass pro/cabelas... shipping on bumpers could get outta hand!

    Barts, Overtons, SkiDim.com, all good spots..

    Always check Walmart for throwable cushions, bumpers, anchors, etc. We have 3 in town and you'd be amazed at the stuff the one near the lake carries vs. the other ones. They have hitches, lights, bearing buddies, etc. They've surprised me a few times.

    Walmart does not carry much in my area, but academy sports and bass pro shop have large selections.

    I have the low profile fenders and it really depends on what you're going to use them for. They work very good when docking for fuel or tying up with another ski boat. I have used them for overnight dockage in a slip and have found they don't work so well because the boat sits so low in the water and the slip is higher. I bought some normal sized ones and tie them to the posts in the slip and worked much better.
