Lifting the Call For Tightened Security

Friday, July 02, 2004
Keeping small response boats operating at top speed and ready for action is a key challenge in meeting tightened maritime security rules. The US Coast Guard was the first to incorporate hydraulic boat lift technology into their operations. By combining high-speed hydraulics with remote control and stable platforms, the FloatLift by Sunstream has the boat ready to go by the time the crew can run out the dock. Not only does this meet the Coast Guard’s need for fast response, immediate access to the hull and drive reduces the overall cost of maintaining their fleet. The US Navy has expanded the use of the FloatLift to other time critical missions, such as oil-skimming boats. Fire and police departments are finding the FloatLift ideal as their boats sit for long periods of time between responses.
