HOSTAR...THE ORIGINAL STACKABLE POWERBOAT STANDS

Setting a new standard for savings in boat yards everywhere.

One thing about boatyards... there's never enough space. That's why more and more yard owners are switching to stackable boat stands from HOSTAR. Stackable boat stands let you store more boats by eliminating your reliance on costly, cumbersome cradles. Then when boats are in the water, you simply stack the boat stands out of the way.

HOSTAR Boat stands are constructed of long-lasting steel, the latest in corrosion-resistant screws and handles, and hull-protecting wood pads. And since they're easy to use, you save on time and labor costs bringing boats in or out of storage.

Rugged construction stands up to years of tough work.

  • Tripod design maximizes stand strength, ensures stability on uneven yard surfaces.
  • Continuous base prevents legs from spreading...helps prevent sinking into gravel or asphalt paving.
  • Heavy-duty angle iron construction won't twist or bend.
  • Choice of durable painted finish, or tough hot-dipped galvanizing for years of maintenance-free use.
  • New! Lightweight, zinc-coated screw with handle (rated at 12,500 lbs.) for little maintenance, easier handling and longer life.
  • 12"x12" finished marine-grade plywood pads protect hull without slipping.
  • HOSTAR's unique adjustable keel stands are designed to support the boat's weight. Can be used alone or combined with wood blocking under the keel.
CUT COSTS, TOO!
With HOSTAR stackable boat stands, you can stabilize a powerboat with as few as four stands. And unlike custom cradles, you can quickly adjust the boat stands for many hull shapes and lengths, so they can be used over and over again. Plus, stackability means you save on freight and valuable storage space, too!

To Determine quantities:
  • 2 stands needed for every 8-10 feet of boat length.
  • Use wood blocking or keel stands to support keel.
  • Specify swivel or V-head. Additional screw pad assemblies available.

RECOMMENDED POWERBOAT STAND PLACEMENT
  • Blocking or Keel Stands - use fore and aft to support all weight of boat. Use minimum of 2 sets blocking, plus an additional set for every 10 feet of boat length over 20 feet.
  • Stands - use a pair of stands for each 8 feet of boat length - minimum 4 stands per boat
  • Place rear stands close to outboard corners with the adjusting screw as perpendicular to the hull as possible.
  • Place stands with point of triangle facing away from center of boat. This permits placing dunnage under tip of base to conform pad to hull.
  • If ground is soft, use suitable dunnage under stands in order to get full contact.
  • To position against hull, hold the screw with one hand, raise screw with pad to boat hull, spin the wing nut with other hand, continuing to tighten until desired tension is realized.
SAFETY TIPS FOR STAND USE
  • Boat stands are to be used as stabilizers. NEVER use boat stands as sole support of boat (without blocking keel).
  • The person placing, moving, or adjusting the boat stands must be authorized and experienced.
  • If it is necessary to remove a boat stand from under a boat, place another stand beside it first.
  • Make sure that the stands are firmly positioned on the ground.
  • Use dunnage under stands if the ground is soft.
  • Do NOT place blocks or other material on top of stands to make them higher.
  • Never allow anything (such as a boat cover) to be tied to the stands.
  • Replace badly rusted or damaged stands.
