If your company is a long-standing participant in the boating industry, you may already know how vital it is to maintain the security of your customers’ boats. You can make boat storage and blocking simple and easy by using boat stands. The stands place powerboats in the proper position for as long as necessary without damaging these expensive assets. If you are a boatyard, marina, or shop, you simply do not want to operate without these boat stand sets. The design of the stands presents a simple and easy solution to boat storage. At HOSTAR Marine, we provide various boat stands that are formulated to meet your specific needs. The stands are stackable and include many other important features.
The stands are constructed durable materials to prolong their service lives. The stand itself is constructed of angle iron with a continuous triangular base. A zinc-coated Acme screw, adjustment handle, and marine-grade plywood top allow for adjustment for all boats. HOSTAR builds powerboat stands and sailboat stands that are designed to be stackable, for easy storage.
Proper Boat Support
For proper support, powerboats require four stands at a minimum. Sometimes sailboats use a minimum of five stands. An extra pair of stands is necessary for each additional 10-foot length greater than 20-feet. When blocking on soft surfaces, it is important to provide dunnage under the base to stabilize the stand.
Other Boat Stand Benefits
Boat stands are an important asset in any boatyard. The design of the stands keep boats protected from damage, including chipping of paint, scratches, and dents. Besides the fact that the stands are easy to use, they are also adjustable, allowing for storage of a variety of boats. Through proper utilization of the stands in a safe manner and implementation of the right precautions, you can provide your customers with the highest-level of safe boat storage.
