WHAT IF YOU COULD BE STABLE TO MOVE FREELY, IN SAFETY?
Boats have always been like this, so you just put up with unsafe boarding, strict rules about keeping to you own side and having scared passengers.
WHAT IF YOU COULD BE STABLE CROSSING BARS?
You're not fond of crossing bars, because you know (or have seen) how easy it is for boats to broach, nose-dive & capsize on small waves.
WHAT IF YOU COULD BE STABLE THROUGH CHOP?
You & your back suffer the "bang" through choppy conditions, and when a bigger boat creates wake, you feel like a cork in a spa-bath, with no control.
STRESS FREE, NO MATTER WHAT
THIS IS HOW THE K.B.C. GOT HERE
"The near-miss scared me..." - Pat Jones, inventor of the KBC
I'm a surfer from the 1960s who has been addicted to boating since I was a boy. It's what drew me into becoming a qualified boilermaker - to build boats! I built many boats for others, before building my own sailing yacht in 1993, which we swapped for the family home, for 8 fantastic years.
During that time of living on the water, the unsafe choice of either a tippy tinnie or deflatable RIB, for my family's daily travel, really got under my skin.
However, it wasn't until 2009, when a bar crossing nearly capsized my 4.3m tinnie, that I was pushed to invent the Kapten Boat Collar. The near-miss scared me enough that I quit the best job of my life and put all my effort into solving the problems of most small boats, that had bugged me for decades.
To this day, I still live and breathe the Kapten Boat Collar (and now Waverider boat) solution, because life on the water is a full life. Helping my family and yours enjoy it in safety and with more freedom & comfort is the most fulfilling thing I've ever done!
