An optional feature, the Bar Flap® is used in conjunction with the Quickflow® water ballast system.
Designed with an electric actuator for positive closure, the big advantage of the Bar Flap system is that it can be operated from the helm rather than from the back of the boat and it uses an actuator for a firm seal.
The Bar Flap can be used in two ways…
1. To keep the water out to make the boat lighter when beach launching. The boat will float higher and have less draft. (ie. The boat can travel through shallower water.)
2. To trap the water in to make the boat heavier. In some situations extra weight (or ballast) in the hull can provide a better ride.
Although not essential, this feature may be useful for those who have a shallow draft application or run very lightly loaded.
