3.1m Horizon Pathfinder: “Planes much faster [now] and with less throttle”

“Hi Megan,
I finally put my new tinnie to use on Friday/Saturday. It is a whole new experience. It is like riding a tricycle. You just can’t lean into the corners anymore. The stability is excellent to say the least. The ride is very dry. It planes much faster and with less throttle. There is no backwash over the transom when backing off on the throttle quickly.

Many thanks,

6 metre fibreglass Hooker: “I wish I’d put the Collar on years ago”

We ended up fitting the Collar early in the new year and WOW! What a difference to the boat. No more sideways lean while travelling at speed and the collar cuts the spray back down even with a strong side wind so she’s a much dryer boat. And at rest the stability is awesome. It…
