Boat Forks and Marina Forks
Boat Forks and Marina Forks
Boat Forks and Marina forks are custom designed products used in boat manufacturing, storage, and marina applications.
Boat Forks and Marina Forks and Boat Handling carriages can be adapted to telehandlers, front-end loaders, traditional forklifts, and negative drop fork trucks for applications involving launch and recovery operations.
In nearly all applications, Boat and Marina Forks are equipped with either Nylon / Polypropylene or High Durometer Polyurethane Rubber covers or coatings to prevent damage to boat hulls and provide a higher coefficient of friction for secure handling.
Boat Fork Length, Shape, Protective Covering, Mounting, and many other aspects must be considered when designing a set of Boat Forks.
Boat Handling Carriages
In some cases Boat and Marina Forks are paired with a specifically designed boat handling carriage to allow positioning of the forks to varying boat styles (pontoon, inboard, inboard/outboard, outboard, flat bottom, V-Bottom, etc).
Boat Handling Carriages can allow for Fork positioning, sideshifting, and even contact angle adjustments to ensure proper engagement with the specific hull and power combination of the boat be lifted.
Boat Handling Carriages are most commonly used in Marina and Storage applications where a wide variety of boat and power combinations are encountered.
