An Australian surfer and boatie from the 1960s, Pat knew surfboard fins laterally grip the water to prevent sideways slip and produce lift, and he wondered if a type of "fin" would do the same for boats. Here's the result: a boat that doesn't broach. He still surfs on a board now and then, and there was no danger to the surfers at the Moolooaba bar (shared zone) that day.
The angular shape of Boat Collars (diagram on website) traps spray under the hull, creating water-pressure that forces the bow up and away from nose-diving dangers. Makes chop feel like fluff and for a dry boat.
His Kapten Boat Collar is now patented and AVAILABLE TO BUY and not only improves the performance and handling of small boats, it adds Level Flotation and stability, due to the "fins" being made of strong marine foam.
