Boat Naming Boat naming your vessel can be quite a daunting task. Do you go with something traditional like naming it after your significant other? Or do you shift gears toward where you’ve been, where you’re going or what you’ll do when you get there? Do you “tack” in some nautical terminology or do you steer clear of the puns? The options are endless and there is so much room to represent you and your life (or not). Check out a few considerations we recommend below to help aid you in your decision! Consideration 1: Before finalizing your vessel’s name, do a quick search for its popularity. Be sure to take a stroll through your local marina and/or boat yard, too! If you pick a popular name, there is a good chance you’ll end up crossing paths with another vessel in your boating region with your same name. This creates [...]

Why the Davit Worksheet When you are ready to explore your Hurley Davit options, the first step is to fill out our Davit Worksheet. We do not keep a database of all the different vessel platforms or dinghies. There are just too many variations. From added platforms or other accessories like grills and grab bars, each set up is unique. We want to be absolutely sure the system we recommend is going to work with your specific set-up! We do not keep measurements on file based on vessel or dinghy types . . . The Davit Worksheet asks for a number of measurements including platform width (port to starboard), platform depth (transom out to the edge), height off the water (top of the platform down to the water), transom height (top of the platform to the top of the transom), as well as dinghy length, beam & total weight including [...]

Fish ConTroll With Hurley Marine’s new Fish ConTroll, avid anglers can focus on one thing while out on the water: The next big catch. The Fish ConTroll acts as a fisherman’s cruise control, maintaining boat speed based on desired hook speed while trolling. To consistently catch fish you need to know lure speed, sub-surface temperatures and depth. That’s what the Hurley Fish Con-Troll™ does and more. It will maintain boat speed, in all conditions, at your desired lure speed depending upon your preferred fish species to make for precision trolling. The Fish ConTroll ™ relays important speed information from the downrigger ball to the angler and the kicker motor to maintain lure speed. When trolling against the current, the angler must slow the boat down to keep the lure working at optimal speed; trolling with a current, the angler needs to speed up, the Fish ConTroll™ does this for you. If the [...]

Davits - Helpful Questions when looking for a Davit Todd Hurley of Hurley Marine explains how the right davit makes loading your dinghy a breeze. Crystal Hayes / Regal 32 What are the benefits of bringing a tender aboard using a davit? Hurley: Instead of towing a dinghy behind your craft, you easily can bring it aboard to eliminate performance-robbing drag. The low-profile storage position on Hurley Davits provides exceptional stern visibility. What factors should be taken into consideration when choosing a davit? Hurley: Platform and dinghy measurements, as well as weight, should be kept in mind. We advise choosing the best davit for your boat and letting that dictate your choice of dinghy. Remember that dinghy size and weight may impact trim, performance and the structural integrity of your vessel. While some boat owners get around this by towing their dinghy, it's neither safe nor practical. Are davits hard to install? Hurley: Hurley Davits are easily mounted with simple [...]
