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

3.1m Mantacraft tender: “My little boat is now so steady”

“The Collar has easily increased the carrying capacity and safety level of my 3.1m Manta-craft aluminium dinghy since I fitted it myself in 2012. “My dinghy is a tender to my 25ft fibreglass South Coast yacht, and it’s now so stable and buoyant, I can easily take 3 adults, plus my friends Doberman dog, as…
