YOU CAN HAVE THE STABILITY OF YOUR DREAMS!
The Boat Collar creates a wide-reverse chine shape when fitted low on the exterior sides (at the chine), producing many performance benefits and increased stability.
How the Collars work:
See the Big-Boat stability:
A STABLE BOAT IS A SAFE BOAT
Freedom to move around, to stand, to board with ease, are just some of the stability benefits given by a Collar.
Everyone should feel safe in their boat, with no fear of it tipping or worse, flipping over!
Even on the smallest of tinnies, stability is drastically increased with a Boat Collar, which makes boarding A LOT safer and easier, and on even small boats, two people can comfortably and safely fish from the same side with minimal tipping.
There's nothing worse than falling overboard (just ask the many people who have), and if the boat flips over as well, the loss is more than your dignity, it's your phone, keys, wallet, fishing gear, outboard motor damage, cost of retrieval etc...
Whether it's an unexpected wake, sudden shift of movement inside or something else - tipping and capsize happens so quickly. Be prepared.
BEFORE & AFTER A COLLAR (12FT BOAT)
"We almost came to grief a few times."
"...any shift of weight off the center line or unbalanced weight would cause the boat to tilt down to the gunwale. Very Dangerous... We almost came to grief a few times when 2 people stood on the same side of the boat, as you nearly got tipped out... [Now] I am looking forward to being able to fish with him [brother], as it is something that was impossible before." - Nathan. NSW. 4m Snyper boat.
"...It’s like I’ve got a different boat altogether. It feels even bigger... The stability of my boat is now fantastic. In the two years I’ve had it, I can’t fault it, and I always recommend it to other boaties.” - Andrew Taylor
4.2m Stessco Catcher
"[the kids] were moving about the boat like it was an aircraft carrier. I was about to remind them of our earlier brief, but the boat was so steady, I let it go, and they had a ball." - St John J.
4.35m Allycraft Intruder
"Rhonda found it far more stable to climb into... Great stability and supreme confidence in moving around... We increased load to 3 adults and a small dog and felt like nothing changed at all. " - Steve
TAKE WAVES AT AN ANGLE. YOU'RE NOW FREE TO WEAVE.
Sharp turning ability and hydrodynamic lift at the bow allows you to cross waves at an angle and even overtake them.
Extreme Boat Collar test on 4.2m Quintrex Dory
When you can quickly and sharply turn your boat to avoid an object or breaking wave in your path - you've just saved your boat from damage, and possibly your life.
The ability to turn tight with stability isn't restricted to calm waterways - but been proven on the face of waves while crossing bars, making crossing bars & large boat wakes much easier and safer.
How does it work?
The Boat Collar's reverse chine shape creates a down-angle point, which, when fitted to a boat, act like surfboard fins on a surfboard.
When a surfboard has no fins, the board slips and slides on waves, is hard to control and unpredictable to ride.
In the same way, without the water-cutting action of a Collar, your boat lacks lateral grip and can be challenging or dangerous as soon as the boat is not going straight-ahead or the water is not calm.
With a Collar, you have the freedom to choose the better & safer path.
“It got onto the plane as quick, if not quicker, than before but the huge difference was the handling of the boat. The ability to turn sharply was something that could never have been performed before the Boat Collar was installed, now I can turn sharply on the plane and not fear the fact that i would be ejected from the boat."
- Nathan, 4m Snyper.
LEVEL FLOTATION - DO NOT SINK OR CAPSIZE IF FLOODED
Level flotation works to keep your boat upright and stable when it's flooded.
It is required by law for commercial boats, because it is safest for the crew.
Kapten Boat Collars surround your boat with buoyancy, making small boats unsinkable, and extremely hard to capsize.
You and your loved ones can sit safely inside your flooded or swamped boat to await rescue, keeping you out of the water, away from sharks & other dangers, as well as reducing the high risk of hypothermia, which claims too many casualties.
When you're submerged in water that's 10-15 degrees C, you have 1-2hrs before succumbing to the fatigue & exhaustion of hypothermia. Be prepared.
DO YOU HAVE COMMERCIAL BOATS THAT NEED CERTIFIED LEVEL FLOTATION?
WHY INVENT THE KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS?
Hi, I'm Pat Jones.
A boiler-maker by trade, I'd built a lot of boats for others, before I built my own 50ft steel sailing yacht in 1993. We swapped the family home for 8 fantastic years on the yacht, and gave our teenage kids a great adventure. However, the unsafe and unstable choices of either a tippy tinnie or deflatable RIB, for my family, pushed me to analyse boat designs and look at creating an attachable device.
Passionate about boat design and hydrofoil technology, it wasn't until 2009, after my 4.3m tinnie nearly capsized during a return bar crossing, that I was really inspired to invent the Kapten Boat Collar.
To this day, I still live and breathe the Kapten Boat Collar (and now Waverider boat) solution, because we're saving many lives by making small boats safer.
