Sportsman Boats highlights Seakeeper Ride
The Seakeeper Ride System is the first-of-its-kind Vessel Attitude Control System.
The Seakeeper Ride System is the first-of-its-kind Vessel Attitude Control System. This system can eliminate up to 70% pitch and roll underway. Seakeeper Ride controllers are mounted to your Sportsman’s transom, below the waterline. Using custom, proprietary sensing hardware and software, the system understands how the boat is behaving on all three axes and computes a counteracting sequence to reduce pitch, roll and yaw. As the blades are deployed, they intercept the flow of water off of the transom and create lift, correcting the vessel’s motion instantaneously.
The Seakeeper Ride can go from 0-100% deployment in 1/10th of a second. Meaning, that it can make fine adjustment very quickly. Using proprietary software, telemetry and sensors, it is able to detect the movement of the vessel. It then computes a counter adjustment and this is what makes the ride smoother.
