The Original Hydrofoil
Doel-Fin Stabilizer Fin
Doel-Fin is the original hydrofoil developed by an aeronautical engineer to improve overall performance on boats with outboard motors or outdrive units. Molded in two pieces of guaranteed unbreakable, high-strength plastic, each foil is designed to flex independently to absorb shock. The positive effects include greater stability, consistent planing at lower RPM, faster out-of-the-hole performance, steadier turns, higher top-end speeds and lower bow rise at all speeds.
Outboard Hoisting Harness
Motor Caddy securely attaches to outboards to provide a safe and secure handle for carrying, hoisting and lifting. Makes handling cumbersome motors safer, simpler. Sized to be quickly attached to most outboards from 2–15 horsepower. This unique design features a longer strap to fit 4-stroke motors and an added security strap for today’s streamlined engine cases. Made of UV resistant materials that will endure the marine environment for those who prefer a semi-permanent installation. Glass filled Nexus® nylon buckles insure easy installation and removal. May be installed with buckle on either side of the motor. The webbing is one continuous piece; pulling on one side will tension the other side. The self-centering handle serves as the lifting point for lanyards and hoists, or balanced lifting by hand.

Docking and Maintenance
FSR Fiberglass Stain Remover
FSR is a unique stain absorbing gel that serves a variety of purposes both ashore and afloat. It's ideal for removing oil, rust, exhaust, waterline and transom stains, yet it can also be used anywhere else fiberglass stains may crop up—shower stalls, furniture, etc. Use for removing road soil from trailered boats and recreational vehicles. Its non-abrasive quality means that it's safe to use on white painted surfaces as well as on gel-coat. Requires no sanding or compounding. Simply apply with a brush, sponge or cloth. Wait a few minutes and then wipe off or rinse. USE ON SHOWERS AND SPAS, TOO.
Air-Dryr is a silent, inexpensive and effective way to combat moisture, cold drafts and corrosion. Designed to operate anywhere continuously 24 hours a day—just plug it into any 110/120 volt outlet and leave it on. It works best when placed low on the floor of any damp, enclosed space allowing Air-Dryr to draw in cool, moist air. The damp air is gently heated to the point where moisture is held in suspension (above the dew point), then released through the top vents of the device. As warm air rises, more damp air is drawn into the unit, where it too is heated. The resulting natural convection circulates the air and prevents moisture from settling. In a perfect situation, ventilation will remove the moisture laden air, replacing it with drier air
Shock Absorbing Solutions
Shockles are designed to absorb all shock loads at the dock, at
anchor, on a mooring and on land. By absorbing shock loads,
Shockles quiet anchor chain noise, and extend the life of dock lines
and anchor lines by minimizing wear and chafe. When rigged
properly, jarring from tidal surge and wind waves is eliminated
increasing both comfort and safety aboard.
LineSnubbers feature our progressive tension design—the more they stretch the more tension it takes to stretch them. This minimizes the return force and dampens shock loads better than traditional rubber snubbers. LineSnubbers attach to the line by using a traditional clove hitch knot, or by using an optional Davis LineGrabber. The Davis LineSnubber is easily adjusted for varying conditions, and it can be readily be moved from line to line, unlike rubber snubbers where the line is woven into the snubber.
Davis Removable Chafe Guards fit braided or twisted line from 3/8 to 1" (10–25 mm). They're easy to remove and adjust as lines stretch or chafe protection is needed elsewhere. Great for dock, mooring and anchor lines where wearing through a line could cost you the boat. The outside cover is made of tough, UV-stabilized nylon webbing. The inside is lined with hook-and-loop fasteners to grip the rope.
