Tides Marine Sureseal

At the METSTRADE show last fall in Amsterdam, BoatTEST founder Jeff Hammond got a firsthand look at the Tides Marine Sureseal. Simply inflate the bellows to create a temporary seal, remove the front of the housing assembly, slip a new seal into position (they’re included) secure it and deflate the bellows—you’re done! The boat doesn’t have to come out of the water, which saves an owner countless down hours, not to mention labor costs.
