Ernie Hamby invented the Beaching Bumper in 1988. There are now tens of thousands in use today.
The Hamby’s will fit most v-hulled boats.
Not generally – when a boat is “planed out” the Protector is not in the water.
The Hamby’s Protector is made from a super tough Urethane, similar to what automobile manufacturers use to protect the chrome bumpers on vehicles – only it’s tougher!
We manufacture a 6 foot and 8 foot length Protector. Both are 6 inches wide, and the center impact area is 5/8 inches thick.
The Beaching Bumper weighs about 4 1/2 pounds.
Hamby’s is available only in Black.
The Hamby’s Beaching Bumper is installed with West System epoxy, giving our product the strongest bond available on the market!
No. Due to the need for specialized equipment and the slightly technical nature of installation, the Hamby’s Protector Beaching Bumpers are dealer installed only.
Due to the varying labor rates across the country, we cannot set an installation price. The price is set by the installing dealer. Contact your local dealer for a quote.
