Two Effective Ways of Pulling Ships in Slipway Winch

By Using Marine Airbags: Airbags provide flotation through inflation, reducing friction, and in combination with marine winches can smoothly pull a boat into the water or dry dock. This method can reduce the resistance of pulling ships, enhances safety and operational efficiency, especially for large vessel slipway operations.


By Using Rail Trolleys: It is a skidding device that moves along a track by winches or electric motors, connecting the boat with a rope or chain to achieve the pulling of the boat into the water or dry dock. This way is simple and precise in operation, with excellent control and suitability for small to medium-sized vessels.

How to Choose the Two Ways?

When deciding between marine airbags and rail trolleys for towing your boat, there are several factors to consider in order to determine the most suitable slipway winch equipment for your project.

  • Boat size and type
    Marine airbags suit large vessels by sufficient buoyancy and smoothness. Rail trolleys are ideal for precise control with small to medium-sized vessels.
  • Equipment cost and investment
    Marine airbags are versatile in various water conditions, while rail trolleys require tracks, limiting their suitability in certain environments.
  • Environmental Adaptability
    Marine airbags are costlier upfront but economical for larger boats and extended use, while rail trolleys are budget-friendly for short-term needs.
  • Operational control requirements
    Rail trolleys provide precise control and adaptability, while marine airbags may require more manual control for smooth water entry.
