Climate change is real. Leaving your boat in the water is the safest place for your boat as long as you have Pilemates and tall pilings that will protect your boat from storm surges. Pilemates will protect your boat from damage from hitting the pilings since the lines adjust with any storm surge. Our system was tested and proven during Hurricanes Sandy and Florence where we had over 100 boats protected by Pilemates. Most people believe that being on land is a good idea, but the truth is, more damage is sustained by boats that are on land because they are susceptible to wind and storm surges. With our Pilemate system, the boats are safe and you save the cost of hauling your boat every time the wind blows.
