The Ultimate Boat
Ryan Pratt, who owns the Sea Tow franchise in Stuart, Florida, tricked out his tow boat with some of the coolest gear.
Blue Sea Systems ML-Series Remote Battery Switches
These install on the dash like rocker switches, giving fingertip control of the battery switches from the helm. They also have a manual override so you can use the traditional battery switches if needed.
Pratt also installed DeckHand Dimmers that control the brightness of his onboard lights so he can adjust from barely visible to full power as needed.
CPI Marine Air Collar
The heavy-duty polyurethane collar has better UV resistance than PVC tubing and is more puncture-resistant than hypalon. The collar uses removable air bladders for inflation, so if one gets punctured, it is easy to remove it and replace with a spare. The bladders can be swapped out on water, so Pratt can do a fast repair at sea if needed and still get home safely.
Marine Propulsion Technologies Thrusters
These look like prop guards, but they contain a system of nozzles and venturi ports that flow clean water to the propellers so they get good bite in all conditions, significantly decreasing cavitation at high rpm or in rough seas. The cone-shaped units also increase directional thrust, which improves performance. In flat seas the additional drag could scrape 5 percent off their efficiency, but in any other sea conditions the improved water flow will boost efficiency.
