Complex systems lead to new products

A clean and simple clutter free deck is still the trend with both dinghy and yacht owners, often leading to complex take up systems under deck, says SeaSure’s Dan Henderson.

“We have also found that with the advances in composites and rope technology have led to much higher loadings throughout the boat,” he said. “These changes have led to us designing new products over the last 12 months.”

One of which is Pad I, designed to allow low loading parts to be fixed to a boat or deck without having to drill attachment holes.

“PAD-I has been manufactured using carbon filled nylon, so it is extremely strong and extremely light, only weighing 5.5 grams,” explained Dan.

Take up systems

“Pad I’s main function is to allow take up systems to be fitted on or under the deck.”

Pad I comes complete with a length of 1.5mm SK99 Dyneema.

Another new product from SeaSure is its Ultra High Load block, designed for kicker and backstay systems.

The 35mm block has a breaking load over 2000kg and is constructed from 17-4 heat treated stainless steel and duplex stainless to take the extra loading.

“We are seeing exotic materials used more and more as the need to cope with higher loadings continues,” added Dan.

“The main reason we are seeing more take up systems on boats is that as the loads increase, so do the cascades used to be able to pull the systems on.”
