PRICES OF KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS

Prices are in AUD and include GST (delete 10% if outside Australia). Postage and fitting is not included here.

Here's what's new!

O-Mini 33. The "O" is for "original," because it's the same foam from the first line of Boat Collars (that are still in use). It requires extra TLC & takes longer to fit, but we've reintroduced it to help make your boat safe, even if your budget's tight. Made to order (not in stock).

Mini 33 is often referred to as just "Mini." Half the flotation, stability and performance of a Max Collar, but still a hard worker! Limited stock.

Max 66 used to be named a "Regular" Collar, but it's so outstanding, there's nothing regular about it. Because it has the widest reverse chine, it's the one that gives you maximum performance, stability & flotation. Plenty in stock.

Slim 48 is a brand new Collar that's as narrow as a Mini and as high as a Max. It's for when you need to comply with width restrictions, but you want more  flotation than the Mini. Available January 2019.

Compare Collars: Mini-33 next to a Max-66. "Tinnie Grey" colour is standard.

FEATURES OF TUFF-TEC KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS

boldee_icon_154

Quality marine buoyancy foam

All our Collars are 100% closed-cell, cross-linked, polyethylene foam, so they do not absorb water and are non-deflatable, petro-chemical resistant and fire retardant. 

boldee_icon_update_96

Ticks AMSA's rules

Meets strict National Standard for Commercial Vessels and all the criteria in NSCV-020, (Part C, Section 6, Subsection 6B, ch. 10). 

2 stable smlr

Two layers of harder foam

The denser outer layer is for tough wear and a firmer surface for the external fixings. The inner layer makes fitting faster and easier and also strengthens the overall fitting.

boldee_icon_120

UV stabilized

The UV properties of our Tuff-Tec foam increases the lifespan of the foam by slowing the sun's deteriorating effects.

The harder/denser layers are the lighter coloured layers.

Is your boat one of these? Here's what you should to know

International boats

Shipping to countries outside Australia starts at $700 AUD. Click below for more information.

No overseas distributors, at present.

Boats over 3.5m

External fixings. If your boat is over 3.5 metres and is not a tender, your Collar will need external reinforcement (minimum 1 per side).

We will advise how many & where they're needed.

$10 - $16 each including GST and all necessary hardware.

Boats under 3.5m

Rego Numbers. If you'll have less than 150mm free-board after your Collar is fitted, let us know, so we can order rego no's to go onto the Collar for you.

Stickers are custom made & super sticky.

$75 a pair (at cost). Includes fitting or Aust. Wide postage.

Extra protection for your investment

Strap Protectors

Strap Protectors are custom made for your roof-topper &/or trailer boat.

The plate protectors help disperse the pressure placed on the Collars by your straps. Hence they prevent unsightly indents on the Collars and undue stress.

$79 per pair for Max & Slim Collars, including GST.

$69 per pair for Mini Collars, including GST

B.C Shield

BC Shields are perfect for that tough-as-nails protection against crab / cray pots, oyster covered pylons etc.

Offers 100mm protection underneath and 60mm protection on top. May need further shaping if front needs to curve with Collar. Only for Max & Slim Collars.

$179 ea for 2.4m L, including GST.

$99 ea for 1.2m L, including GST. (pictured)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What colour range is there?

All our Collars come in aluminium grey. Slight variances of grey depths appear throughout the stock, and even within the Collar itself. 

However, the Collars can be painted or coated, if you really want the Collar to match your boats colour - see our Maintenance page for all the info you need.

Does it have to go all the way to the bow?

The full-length is a major feature that makes KBCs work as well as they do. #1. It turns down the spray, for dry rides. #.2 It produces bow lift, to protect against nose-diving. #3. It provides maximum overall buoyancy.#4. IMPORTANT: if a Collar stops short (is not full length) on a chine fitting, 'green' water can get on top of it during a turn, which has the potential to make it dig in and flip the boat. A proper-length Collar does the opposite, allowing the tightest, most level turns possible.

Will a Collar cause corrosion?

No, because all screws are coated with Tef-gel, an amazing creamy substance that remains tacky for years, to keep a protective barrier between the stainless steel screws & your aluminium hull.

The Collar itself is fitted tight against your hull and is non-corrosive, being foam. If you use your boat up very dirty creeks or flood waters, and are concerned about debris wedging against your hull, you can run a strip/bead of Sikaflex or silicon around the Collar to seal it, if you want.

Regarding painted boats; factory painted or boats that have been prepped and painted with quality marine paint, won't have a problem with a Boat Collar being fitted. BUT, if you have a hull that's painted cheaply, like with house paint, that was also poorly prepared, it's almost guaranteed the paint will deteriorate and allow water to sit behind the paint and cause corrosion.

Can I buy locally?

No, for quality control, all sales go through the Nambour office in Queensland, Australia. 

Can my particular boat have a KBC?

KBCs are great on V-nose punts, most fibreglass & plastic hulls, open single-skin canoes & kayaks, flat-nose punts, and of course the standard tinnie.

Double-skinned fibreglass hulls & big plate boats over 5m have the option of a different type of fitting, we call the Chemi-Weld method. Ask us for more info.

RIBs, jet skis & ski boats, inboard jet boats (including most bass boats) are not suitable for the Collars.
