3.8m Stacer: “I’d take the tinny anywhere with the Collar on”

“Boat Collar is awesome. Exceeds expectation. At full-speed, I turned [the tiller] so hard, it’s all I could do to hang on, as the boat just stayed flat and cut brilliantly.”Chop turned to smooth on the way to Maroochy Mouth, and it was gusting to 41km/h at test time. Stable stationary and under way. Bow waves no problem at full tilt, both head-on and side-on. Shallow water navigation is better.”

“No spray in any direction. It also reduces the wind drift when the bimini is up by about 60%.

“No drop in speed with the solas (propellers) 10” pitch. Still sitting at just under 50km/h. No cavitation issues.

“Not a drop of water in the well. Gets on plane almost instant. No backwash from full speed to kill.”

“You need a medal for coming up with this one. Can’t wait to surf it and push it even harder. I’d take the tinny anywhere with the Collar on.”

    I purchased the boat collars for my 3.8 tinnie two years ago and fitted them myself which was very easy to do myself as i live in west australia and fitment from a third party was too much. I couldnt fit a larger boat in my driveway so had to stick with a 3.8 tinnie. The collars were shipped to my house packaged in cardboard. I am so impressed with this product and feel so safe on the water now.The boat is so different and rides better now.Its the best value for money ive spent .

      Cheers, Pat.
