V-Lock Universal Mounting System | Atlanta Boat Show
Atlanta Boat Show
Atlanta boat show January 13-17 was our first predominantly
fresh water show and we got a lot of great feedback on how
the V-Lock will work for the boaters out on the rivers and
As usual people had their own ideas on how to use
them but this time the most significant was another
exhibitor a short distance away. A kayak manufacturer had
been getting questions on how a small trolling motor could
be mounted to their product. We gave them a V-Lock to
demonstrate to their customers how it could be attached to
the kayaks to support a small trolling motor (or just about
anything else) and it was not long before we had
people coming by to purchase a V-Lock for their new kayak.
Just like at the Saint Pete show we found that we needed a
rail solution. This time it was for the square rails
commonly found on pontoon boats. To demonstrate to pontoon
boaters how it could work we bolted 2 V-Locks back to back
on the railing of a boat across the aisle from us. This
worked well and was very sturdy but most people would not
want to have to buy two V-Locks for the same location, so we
came up with a simple and sturdy solution using StarBoard.

The next show is the Miami
International Boat Show
February 11-15 (Booth 4155). We
will have the prototypes for the round rail adaptor kit and
hope to get some feedback from sail boaters.
