would be great for bro stock and events like that... as long as you have two boats with tube towers.

but then again, i supose you could hook them up to a cleat or some other method could be rigged up

Okay, so what keeps the things perpendicular to the boat? What happens if one of the boats go forward or backward a bit? What happens if the velcro breaks loose and goes through that side window? It just looks like this wouldn't work in anything but perfectly calm water with no other moving boats or wakes around.

Bumpers have worked for me the last 15 years, at that price, pretty sure bumpers will work another 15 years....

I'd be willing to try them for 50 or 60 but 360 is way to high.
Like mark said there could be lots of pottential issues.

+1

From what I see its still 100% possible to slide forward or back into the boat next to you... unles you had two - one going straight across another at a 45* angle to make a triangle between the two.

Agreed, way too expensive. Interesting idea, I'm sure this will get some wheels turning.

Interesting idea. Seems like there needs to be some give somewhere or something will give..... like your tower feet or the fiberglass? Plus no support in the rear of the boats? Seems like a lot of torque there.

Exile has some nice Hippity Hops these days. Works on any boat with any tower too.
