Not just for comfort
Over half of all fatal boating accidents in small vessels are due to capsizing and falling overboard*
*NSW DoT findings for 2002 - 2012. Why do boats capsize and why do so many people fall overboard? Because unstable, "tippy" boats are dangerous. Even in calm waters.
Like buoyant "feet" all around you, a Kapten Boat Collar increases your boat's footprint in the water, making your boat feel much bigger. Move around freely and travel through chop without rocking side to side. Other stability products only work when at rest, but your Boat Collar works at all times to keep you balanced, comfortable and safe.
"...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

THE MAN BEHIND THE KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS
G'day, 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.
