We use 4 foot 2x4. I was concerned about this given that we are a 30,000 pound boat. but they have served 8 years. Nearly 100 locks. One tropical storm (Sandy) and on near miss hurricane Irene. Mind you that if we were in a very exposed slip, I would be very concerned about their adequate strength, however they have been used hard. They are light weight too.
