FC DUAL FLOODING BALLAST SYSTEM
The FC Boats Dual flooding ballast system revolutionizes the traditional flooding keel system. You can trust that when you pull up to your favourite fishing spot the flooding keel will fill up automatically, lowering the centre of gravity and putting more of the hull in the water resulting in ultimate stability at rest.
Before you drive home you then have the option of filling up the forward ballast chamber, this is done by opening the gate valve pictured, a few minutes before you leave letting water rush from the already full ballast chamber to the forward ballast tank. The extra 100 – 200L (depending on model) of water up the front of the boat helps push the nose into chop and smooths out the ride for everyone on board.
Both chambers breathe independently and can be flushed by placing a hose into the breather at the front of the boat ensuring salt residue is flushed away.
FC EXTENDED GUNNELS (GUNWALE)
The FC Extended Gunnel combined with large down turned chines provides the ultimate in dryness for everyone on board. The smaller chop is deflected well by the chines, larger waves are quickly turned around and deflected back down towards the water.
FC DUAL POSITIVE BUOYANCY SYSTEM
The FC Dual Positive Buoyancy System provides the safety and security of a pontoon boat, without sacrificing the all-important internal fishing space. Both the port and Starboard gunnels are filled with closed cell foam, providing both buoyancy and stability if the boat was to ever be filled with water, whilst the port and staboard sealed underfloor buoyancy chambers combined with the gunnels leave all FC Boats with positive buoyancy so when you take your family out you can rest assured your FC Boat will not sink.
