King Pin Pegs and the
Super Jumbo Clip
Who would think the humble peg could be
such a business?
Back in 2004, King Pin Team member Rob
Murrie purchased two packets of colourful
plastic pegs found in an Asian market place.
He recognised that the wider grip would anchor
towels and togs on his boat rails, to take the
place of the customary untidy string affair on
Such was the reaction from boaties around
Rottnest Island and his yacht club in Perth, a
business idea was born, beginning with the
now ubiquitous King Pin Pegs.
After further research, the Super Jumbo
Clip was added to the range and has become
the stronger ‘cousin’, proving a best seller for its
added strength whilst serving the same useful
purposes only limited by your imagination.
Bigger boats, bigger grip but still friends
with the humble King Pin Peg.

Flotespace is an online marketplace that
enables boat owners to generate passive
income by allowing people to utilise the boat for
overnight stays or unique working environments
when the boat is berthed in a marina. The boat
doesn’t move and owners have the ability to
communicate with the renter giving them peace
of mind throughout the process.
Flotespace have consulted extensively with
the safety authorities and boating industry
associations to ensure safety and quality is
the primary focus. While your boat sits idle in
a marina berth, it can be generating revenue.
We encourage boat owners to get on-board to
see the benefits and also offer a revenue share
back to marinas willing to drive the initiative.
