No more struggling to Recover or Launch your Boat

Have you ever been frustrated trying to load your boat on to the trailer ? You just get lined up and a wake or gust of wind appears from nowhere, next thing you know you're alongside your trailer not on it.

Well, Floatem Poles could become your best friends when launching or recovering your boat from the slipway.

These innovative new boat accessories actually extend as you enter the water, the deeper you get the more they extend, always visible above the waterline. They protect and guide your boat on and off the trailer, reducing the effect of wind, wake and currents.

Floatem Poles fit most trailer and boat combinations, they come complete with all the necessary hardware and a pair of guide cushions, in a choice of colours, black, royal blue, navy blue, green, yellow, white. red, Hi- Vis yellow or orange

anchor Strength !

No special tools required. Easy bolt on fitting, no drilling or cutting.

For maximum mounting flexibility, high strength mounting brackets can attach the poles above or below the trailer frame.

The square box section, of the poles, fastened to the square box section or channel of the trailer will always remain upright, no twisting or skewing when knocked. Round sleeves roll on the uprights as your boat passes them, not rubbing, therefore less chance of damaging your craft.

Slightly angled, wider at the top, allows the passage of boat fixtures, wakeboard towers and cleats, with ease.

Flexibility !

Easy to fit and strong, Floatem poles guide and centre your boat on to the trailer with ease.
They fit trailer frames up to 65mm ( 2.5" ) wide x 100mm ( 4" ) high, with up to 400mm (16" ) of adjustment on each side ensuring a custom fit on most boat and trailer combinations.

Because of their low profile they look neat on the road. An added feature, once you have launched your boat, is they serve as marker poles when manouvering an empty trailer around the boatyard, allowing you and others to see the corners of the trailer.

Easy to use !

The quick and easy way to centre your boat and trailer. Single handed launch and recovery is easily achieved.

Floatem Poles are low profile telescopic guide / docking poles that extend as you enter the water, staying above the rubbing strip of the boat.
On the road they sit at 980mm ( 38" ) tall but extend up to 1600mm ( 63" ) max, as they enter the water

They provide an essential visual aid when reversing down a boat ramp, to recover your boat.
