Welcome to the 21st century! Nu Teak Decking will outlast any teak decking and it will look like freshly installed teak year after year. Today`s boats utilize many advanced modern materials: carbon fiber and fiberglass provide structural strength, while Kevlar in our ropes and sails give us higher breaking strains and greater product life, and stainless steel has made rust a thing of the past. Now it's time for decking to be treated to a modern, high tech upgrade.
As an authorized dealer and installer, Crate's can pattern and install Nu Teak anywhere on the boat. We also offer a wide variety of interior product giving the look of an upscale hardwood floor with no maintenance. For more information on the details of this fine product follow this LINK.
SIDE POWER THRUSTER SYSTEMS - ALL NEW variable speed control
With many boat customers now having had several boats with thrusters, many choose to upgrade to more powerful versions to be sure that the thrusters work well for them in all situations. However, very powerful single speed thrusters can, in light weather conditions, be a bit difficult to use as they push the boat too fast. The solution is to fit the new Sidepower DC Power Controller, which enables proportional speed control of a DC electric thruster. By also controlling the thruster's power, you get even more precise handling of the boat in all conditions.
Another great advantage is that when you run the thruster at less than full power, the usable run time is extended, with close to continuous usage being possible when you are running the thruster at less than 50% of full power (percentage of thrust with continuous duty depending on thruster model). The extended runtime is put to good use in the Hold-function incorporated in the new panels. With a single press of a button, the bow and stern thrusters will keep you along side the docks. The amount of thrust applied can be adjusted, and in addition the bow and stern thruster can be individually synchronized to get a balanced sideways motion - making single handed docking easy!
