Fort Lauderdale, FL – May 2022 – Hurricane Cove Marina loves their new travel lift except when the steel sling bars damage a larger boat while getting lifted. There’s not much they can do; larger boats and new design styles cause contact between a boat and the lift’s steel components. Although rare, the impact can be costly for the marina and its customer. Before any more steel meets fiberglass, Hurricane Cove enlisted PilePad for a custom solution.

After analyzing the failures, PilePad engineered an all-around solution combining durability, removability, and sleek design to prevent sling bar contact with lifted boats. The engineering includes dense polyurethane foam with a custom-cut rubber reinforced front, a black neoprene shell and removable buckling system. Each sling bar received a two-piece system covering its exposed steel.

What is PilePad Custom. The systems and their custom-fit nature are now available to the thousands of lift operators around the world through PilePad Custom, a department of PilePad Inc. who creates high-end custom dock protection products for the commercial and recreational boating community. Systems can be engineered to be fixed or removable, and are always manufactured with marine-grade, heavy-duty materials.
