By John Kerr
One of the biggest co m plaints we hear fro m our rea ders is ' why we
don't r un more ne w pro ducts'. They often say; "if we don't kno w
we can't buy" an d there is tr uth in that. There are lots of ne w niche
pro ducts launche d every year, but fe w are a dvertise d an d pro mote d
wi dely an d many sa dly are never foun d. We have begun a quest to
look for the 'neat stuff'; the pro ducts that are actually here in
Cana da an d in stock at your local chan dlery.
One pro duct I love is R AIL BL AZA, it's a won derfully designe d
mounting syste m with nu merous accessories an d tons of flexi bility.
Ma de an d designe d in Ne w Zealan d, this is a quality pro duct fro m
packaging to present ation. Inst allation was very easy, it liter ally took
minutes using just a si m ple scre w, nut, an d scre w driver at the four
points of the rect angular base. More co m mon in the kayak an d fish
s pace, R AIL BL AZA has a ton of a p plications on bigger boats too!
R AIL BL AZA is b uilt ar o u n d its St ar P ort m o u nt H D - a
rect a ng ul ar, fo ur- p oi nt i nst all ati o n b ase. T his c o mes wit h everyt hi ng
y o u nee d, i ncl u di ng hig h q u ality st ai nless faste ners. All t heir
pr o d ucts are m a de fr o m hig h q u ality, UV st a bilize d, e ngi neere d
p oly mers, st ai nless steel a n d a n o dise d al u mi ni u m. T he desig n
e ngi neeri ng is brilli a nt, w here extr a stre ngt h is re q uire d, t he
p oly mers use d are fi bergl ass rei nforce d.
What I love a bout the St arPort mount is that it can be surface
mounte d an d re main in 2 variations for a lo wer profile. Its r ail version
is well done; it allo ws so much flexi bility an d versatility in mounting
anything on your r ails like phones, an d t a blets. Fro m to p to botto m,
the base measures less than 1" at it's t allest point. For co m parison,
other deck mounts sit 2" off the deck.
On my ol d boat I a m al ways trying not to drill holes an d
R AIL BL AZA allo ws me to have the e qui p ment mounts any where I nee d
the m while provi ding a strong an d ro bust att ach ment I can count on.
The ca mer a mount is perfect! Very light weight, yet dur a ble an d a djust a ble to many directions. My pictures all look like a professional took
the m. GoPro easily mounts to this accessory! What I really like with
R AIL BL AZA is the sli de locking mechanis m fits to all of the bases
an d the versatility of effortlessly re-t asking the nu merous accessories
fro m one base to another. On our boat, we are consistently moving
drinks, cell phones, t a blets an d cleats all over the boat de pen ding
on the day an d cre w.
I also like the R AIL BL AZA's r unning lights (o ptional) an d its a bility
to be on boar d as a secon d syste m or effortless mount on the dinghy
when night r unning is re quire d.
All in this a great pro duct an d I bet you don't just buy one!
My solution; st art with t wo!
