Skid ramps Constructions & Installations
The skid ramp is basically the old fashioned concrete ramp. However, in areas where the Department of Primary Industries (former NSW Fisheries) require little change to the foreshore, skid ramps are approved over concrete boat ramps. Our Skid Ramps are always built in Turpentine due to the timbers natural resistance to the Marine Borer and wet rot. Skids not constructed in Turpentine will fail within in around a 12 month period. We always use either hot dipped galvanised or 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel fixings to make sure your new skid ramp will last.
- Slip Rails:
Slip Rails can be added to your skid ramp or you can have slip rails as a stand alone structure. Slip rails to get your vessel in and out of the water and into your boatshed at any tide.
We can build a cradle to suit your vessel in hot dipped galvanized steel or in hardwood. The cradle can be altered at a later date to suit a new vessel if you update your vessel or get something a little larger. All cradles on a slip rail have cast steel wheels with greaseable axels. A range of electric winches and hand winches are available to suite any application depending on the size and weight of your vessel.
We have a large range of winches that we can install for you. Each winch is based on the vessel weight and the incline of the ramp into the boatshed. We can also supply a remote control to your winch to make getting your boat in and out of the boatshed a snap, even without getting your feet wet!
Davits are a great way of getting your tinnie or jet ski out of the water and out of the way. We can supply and install a 300kg Davit or the heavier 500kg Davit. Davit size is based on weight of vessel or jet ski.
