Recommended for three seat pwcs where more room is needed for its passengers, for SCUBA, for spearfishing, for tow boards, or for hauling lots of equipment.
MEGA MODEL- The Most Stable and Durable Sled On The Market, Period!
PWC SURF, OPEN WATER LIFESAVING, DIVE RESCUE RECOVERY SLED
MADE FOR THE RESCUE PROFESSIONAL IN MIND
DURABLE MOLDED POLYETHYLENE HULL WILL OUTLAST and OUTPERFORM PE, PP, EVA FOAM or INFLATABLE SLEDS BY 2 to 3 TIMES GUARANTEED!
Recommended for three seat pwcs where more room is needed for its passengers, for SCUBA, for spearfishing, for tow boards, or for hauling lots of equipment in low profile dry bags. ( Tall Igloo style coolers change the center of gravity, handling characteristics, stability of the craft and ARE NOT RECOMMENDED)
Rotomolded High Density Polyethylene Hull, with molded polyethylene flotation foam inner liner (3/8” to 1/2 inch thick for stiffness and added flotation), hollow air cavity..
(Durable and provide the right amount of traction. Non-slippery like the polyethylene bodyboard foams or non textured PVC foams.
Will not create skin rashes like textured medium density EVA “Hydroturf type” foams)
Basic Tie Down Version with nylon webbing/bungee cords/bumper (Similar to Standard Connection offered by all sled manufacturers) , Utilizes universal, convenient 3-point hookup to all makes and models of pwcs.
The attachments are non-invasive as they are already molded into the sled as holes for rigging. These attachment points will not fail as they go through the entire hull and spread the load evenly across the surface.
Note: Bodyboard style sleds have proven to fail at the attachment points due to types of materials and engineering configurations used to create the anchor points located within the cores, or mount externally on their sleds. The core materials are relatively weak and can easily be taken beyond their breaking points, so the anchor hardware/fiberglass stringers and delrin or metal rods, holding the fastening points to the sled, tear out, leaving the sled, many times, beyond repair.
Nylon webbing and stainless spring clips come standard with each sled and are used and attached to the center main holes in the sled for the center attachment point to the pwc; bungee cords and stainless spring clips are attached to the outboard holes in the sled hull for the other 2 attachment points. Bungees are protected from fraying easily on the sled rails by sleeving the rigging through clear pvc hose.
U-bolts to be installed on pwc hull for mounting sled to the pwc are also included. ( All pwcs require at least one, and up to three of the U-bolts installed on all tie down sleds for a proper 3-point hookup (depending on pwc model), as pwc manufacturers will not provide these proper attachment points on their craft from the factory for liability reasons). Nose of sled is protected through use of a replaceable bumper. The Basic Connection is the most widely used and most affordable option.
