You know what really stinks? When your car is parked a hike from where your boat is docked and you have bags, groceries, or tools to transport. It can require many trips back and forth to get the boat loaded up, and if you’ve got something heavy, like a cooler, it can be a real challenge.
Dockrider Systems has created a motorized dock-transport monorail system that should make moving people and equipment a cinch. The DockChauffeur and the DockCaddy are at the heart of the system; the former is a passenger and cargo bench capable of transporting up to 1,000 pounds, the latter is a weatherproof dockbox that can stow 20 cubic feet of cargo and seat three people on its lid.
Call the company to discuss your specific application. Pricing starts at $7,000.
