The secret of Porta-Boat’s incredible stability?
Its unique, patented “Flexi-Hull” TM
Porta-Bote’s unique FLEXI-HULL TM “flexes” and cooperates with the waves TM
Why is Porta-Bote Much More Stable Than Ordinary Boats?
Here Are 3 Important Reasons:
1- Flexibility is the secret to Porta-Bote’s incredible stability!
Yes, Porta-Bote’s unique FLEXI-HULL TM “flexes” and cooperates with the waves TM
This is the same reason inflatables are more stable than rigid craft. When a strong wave slams against the side of Porta-Bote’s “Flexi-Hull“TM, the polypropylene copolymer flexes inwards approximately 12%. This immediately dissipates the energy of the wave & actually helpd disperse its force. Although any boat can be capsized under certain conditions, It’s really harder to capsize one of these craft than a rigid aluminum or fiberglass boat. Always sit or stand in the center of any boat for best stability. Of course, safe boating is always a matter of using common sense.
2- Advanced Hull Design: Porta-Bote’s superior hull design creates a unique stability. Its patented concave cupped bottom LOCKS onto the water’s surface. Yet, it “glides” over logs and limbs. Even in high winds!
How The UltraSoft Porta-Bote Ride Is Achieved
The Deep V Bow cuts into the chop and guides it under the boat. The outer chine forces the wave back down
How Porta-Bote’s Stability Is Achieved
Water is trapped in the “tunnel” under the Porta-Bote hull. A conventional Vee Hull justs rolls over
Why Porta-Bote Remains So Stable in A Tight Turn
Porta-Bote remains “level” in a turn. A conventional Vee Hull leans sharply in a turn.
3- Extremely Low Hull Weights: Folding Porta-Bote hulls weigh in at an ultra-light:
|8′ – 68 lbs. (30.9kg)||10′- 78 lbs. (35.5kg)|
12′ – 87 lbs. (39.5kg)
14′ – 108 lbs. (49kg)
Half as much as comparable aluminum boats or fiberglass hulls.
