Make EVERY day a BOATING day!

There’s nothing more relaxing than being on the water on a beautiful summer day.  The sunshine, blue skies, warm temperatures, and calm water call to our inner self to pack up the cooler, load the boat and cast off for a favorite spot.  Every boater has a special place to moor out and hang a hook or raft off with boating friends.  Maybe it’s a cove around the bend, an inlet across the lake or a secluded natural harbor. Wherever it is, get out and enjoy the water. Soak up the sunshine! Create lasting memories with family and friends! Make every day a boating day!

Sturgeon Bay, WI is a favorite destination of ours. Once docked, we like to launch our dinghy from our ProDav Swivel Davit System and explore Door County. Make every day a boating day!

“I tried more than 2 years to find an easy way to lift a dinghy on my 45 Foot Princess boat , I was thinking to put Hydraulic system but was very expensive and also needed high maintenance especially in Kuwait. Also I was looking for lifting Davit system with winch but also need a lot of modifications in the body of my boat , I look at PRODAV system and I bought one and I said myself

let me try it and very reasonable price and if not doing what I want I will take it and close only the small holes. It took me around 30 min to install it alone, I took a dinghy from my friend it around 11Foot weight with the engine 300 lb with fiber bottom and try it . WOW it is very simple and easy you do not need anybody to help you to launch or retrieve it and also you can take it out only you need to pull the 2 pins. The ProDav it is very cheap and easy solution and also very strong . Also I try it in high speed and in rough weather , did not change my boat performance or speed , even NOW I going to buy a dinghy after 2 years of searching for a system to lift a dinghy . Thanks ProDav for a simple and easy way!”

DON’T BE APRIL FOOLED

The word fool has many definitions…as a noun- one who lacks judgment or acts unwisely; as a verb-to be deceived, tricked or duped.  With such a variety of marine products out there it can be easy for a boater to be fooled by companies promoting certain claims and then failing to deliver.  A product might look good and appear genuine but turns out to be “fool’s gold”  or an inferior knock off of another companies’ original design. So, whether you’re looking to purchase fenders, lines, electronics, lights, or a dinghy davit system, do your research; investigate the product; talk to other boaters and find the best fit for your boat and budget.  Don’t be “April Fooled” by the ethically challenged companies who lack the honesty and integrity to follow through on their claims.   Our ProDav Swivel Davit System will never let you down.  It has been on the market for over three years and tested on the Great Lakes and the oceans worldwide and continues to exceed all expectations. We take pride not only in our davit system but in our customer service and the honesty and integrity behind it.

Don't be fooled by knock-offs and false claims. The ProDav Swivel Davit System is the davit system for you!

March prep

March signifies different things to different people… in like a lion, out like a lamb…Beware the Ides of March (unfortunately for Julius Caesar he did not heed this warning)…St. Patrick’s Day with leprechauns, shamrocks, green beer…the vernal equinox or the first day of spring bringing equal hours of day and night.  But to most boaters, especially in our neck of the woods, it’s the light at the end of the tunnel.  Boating season is right around the corner.  It doesn’t matter if the ground is still covered in snow or that the frozen lakes and harbors are thick with ice.  We know that it’s coming and will be here soon.  It’s time to start preparing for your launch date. What can be done now so you’re not waiting until the last minute?

Start with your dinghy.  Give it a good cleaning and check for holes, tears, or any damage that needs to be repaired. Make sure your rib or inflatable has up to date registration numbers.  Tune up your motor so it runs smoothly when you need it. Double check your life vests, oars, safety equipment keeping them all in good working condition.  Don’t forget your davits. Did you order your ProDav Swivel Davit System yet?

Be ready…boating season will be here before you know it and you want to make the most of every day.

Prep for boating season and upgrade your davit system with a ProDav Swivel Davit System!

CABIN FEVER OR THE “CAN’T WAIT FOR BOATING SEASON BLUES”

January is leaving us just as it began; cold, cold, cold.  The lakes are frozen and dotted with fish shacks.  The snow is falling (AGAIN); the temperatures have dipped well below zero (AGAIN); the wind is howling and snowdrifts are building (AGAIN).  It seems like such a LONGGGGGG way to boating season and the dreaded cabin fever or “can’t wait for boating season blues” has set in.  Nothing you do seems to help diminish this awful “disease”.

If the winter blues have got you down, take steps to prepare for the upcoming boating season! Just make sure a ProDav Swivel Davit System is on the list.

If cabin fever or the “can’t wait for boating season blues” has taken hold of you, try a few of these tips:

  1. Check out a boat show.  They are in full swing this time of year.
  2. Thumb through your boating magazines or pick up a couple of new ones.
  3. Dig out the photos you took last summer on the dinghy or boat and enjoy the   memories.
  4. Make a list of gear and equipment your vessel needs AND don’t forget a ProDav Swivel Davit System.
  5. Jot down harbors you’d like to visit this summer.
  6. Plan a boating excursion with fellow boaters and get it on the calendar now.

These are certainly not a cure all for the “can’t wait for boating season blues” but they just might help ease the symptoms a bit.

Boating season is over for another year.  As you look back over the summer, what had you hoped to change or update on your boat but never got “A Round To It”? Was it your dinghy davit system? As you watched other boaters effortlessly load and launch their dinghies with the ProDav Swivel Davit System, you thought you’d check it out because your davit system just wasn’t cutting it anymore. But…. never got “A Round To It”. Now you’re thinking of putting it off until spring and then you’ll get “A Round To It”.  Why wait?  It’s the perfect time to order the ProDav Swivel Davit System and you’ll be set for next year.

Fall Boating

With your ProDav Swivel Davit System and dinghy, you can take advantage of seeing fall colors in their splendor!

Many boaters think that Labor Day signals the last days of summer and the end of the boating season.  They get their boats ready for winter, load their gear and store their dinghies until spring.  These boaters are missing out on some of the best boating days of the year; Fall Boating!  So what’s so great about boating in the fall?  Sure, there’s a definite crispness to the air as the sun rises later and sets earlier but the beauty of autumn is phenomenal. The leaves are changing color, geese are flying south, and the night sky is exceptionally bright with stars you can almost touch.  Fall festivals are in full swing and it’s usually easier and less expensive to get a dock at the marinas that were too full over the summer.  Don’t wait; get out there and enjoy these final days of boating even if you just launch your dinghy and take a leisurely ride around your own harbor.
