The LA Harbor Boat Show is a great time to get a demo experience yourself.
As word of mouth goes, the incredible stabilizing ability of the Seakeeper gyro is permeating the inner and outer circles of sportfishing and boating in general. Those that have experienced it themselves on a Seakeeper demo ride either offshore or dockside are the true believers. If you have not taken the opportunity to feel the roll eliminated right out of the boat, then you need to track down the nearest demo boat and try it for yourself.
Berkley Andrews, Seakeeper Sales Manager for the West Coast and Asia, is often on the scene when boaters get their first introduction to Seakeeper. “We get a wide array of exclamations when the Seakeeper engages on a boat we’ve started rocking. The looks of amazement are universal, but are closely followed by the thoughts of how that stability would translate into benefits for their version of fishing and boating.” Berkley continued,
“Many small boats fish pretty far offshore of SoCal in search of tuna and kelp paddies. Much of the SoCal private fleet are fishing boats under 30-feet and the Seakeeper 2 opens up a new realm of safety and stability for them. So often, if the seas kicked up mid-trip, many smaller boats would have to head to the house, but the Seakeeper changes that by making boats more stable, even while running. The Seakeeper performs well at speeds up to 60 mph and is beginning to show signs of improved performance characteristics too. It really changes every aspect of the boat and its use.”
