Sea Weed Marine has taken every precaution to design and build your system, sometimes Mother Nature can be very unpredictable. Please be aware of the following:
You should tow your tender or PWC when the seas get to the point where you are uncomfortable. If you see that your tender is bouncing, or your platform is taking stern waves too hard, you should tow your tender or PWC.
If you are anticipating rough seas DO NOT SECURE YOUR TENDER OR PWC TO YOUR PLATFORM, instead secure it off to the cleats on the rear of your transom. Rig a tow line in case you have to release your tender or PWC quickly.
Sea Weed® Marine hold down belts are designed to hold 720lb. load and are designed to break away to avoid damage to your vessel. Damage to your Tend’r Roller® system is possible.
OVERALL LENGTH OF YOUR TENDER OR PWC MUST NOT EXCEED THE BEAM OF YOUR STERN.
NEVER CARRY OVER OUR RECOMMENDED WEIGHT. Although our system is capable of picking up more that it is rated for, your transom will NOT. Be aware that when your tender is full of FUEL AND GEAR it may be at the maximum weight. It is recommended not to carry anything in your tender or PWC that is not fastened down when you are underway. If you should happen to take a stern wave into your tender or PWC you could add excessive weight. This could cause severe damage to your Tend’r Roller® system, swim platform and/or vessel. IF IN DOUBT TOW YOUR TENDER AND/OR PWC in heavy seas with a quick release tow line.
