Barnacle Busters “Protectors”
Barnacles, oysters and other marine
growth grow on the uni bellows of sterndrives,
which can cut holes in them during normal
operation. This causes expensive damage to
the sterndrive via water ingress and possible
sinking of the vessel.
Our product, called a “Protector”,
envelopes the bellows and stops barnacles
and oysters growing on them. This minimises
the risk of the bellows getting punctured and
causing internal damage to the sterndrive
during the normal ser vice life of the bellows.
Our products are not chemically treated
and therefore environmentally friendly. The
Protectors are easy to fit and fully illustrated
instructions are provided. Barnacle Busters
Protectors should be replaced annually during
routine ser vicing.
We also have trim/tilt ram and steering
ram protectors for Volvo Sterndrives which
reduces damage to the oil seals from
barnacles and take 20 minutes to fit. Our
New Zealand made products are for Volvo,
Mercruiser Yamaha and Konrad Sterndrives.

New mooring solution now
available in Australia
Pile Ring is an industry first, one-piece
floating mooring device that is seriously strong
and unsinkable. It’s a clever and cost effective
solution to the problem many marina operators
and boat owners have, which is ever-changing
tides and unexpected tidal surges due to
storms, squalls and freak weather systems.
The provision of a safe and secure “monitor-
free” mooring facility not only reduces docking
incidents and disasters but also means lower
manpower and maintenance costs. Among
other benefits Pile Rings also reduce marine
growth build up on the piles.
With sales to notable marinas, operators,
municipals and even the US Nav y, distribution
channels are growing. Australia is the latest
region to adopt Pile Ring and Butchart Marine
Ser vices based in Sydney has recently been
appointed as sole distributor for the territory.
