Marine Rail Track System FAQ

What should I do to maintain my Endres Marine Rail Track System?
1. Check for frayed cables and /or binding pulleys.
2. Grease all components at least once a year.
3. Check to make sure all connections are secure.
4. Make sure you are familiar with all of the parts of your system.
5. Keep the track and dolley free of weeds and debris.

Can I put either a run-a-bout boat or a pontoon boat on my Marine Rail Boat Track System?
Our system can accommodate run-a-about boats, deck boats and pontoon boats. Custom boat dolleys are available.

What is a gravity Marine Rail Boat Track System?
The gravity system means that it works like a simple winch system. Gravity takes the boat down the track (sufficient drop in the track is required) and the winch pulls the boat back into the boathouse or up on to shore.

How does the remote control work for the Track System?
The remote is placed between the motor and the power source. The control is a small remote that will fit on a key chain. It works basically the same as a garage door opener.

What pitch is required the Endres Marine Rail Track System in order to keep the dolley rolling down the track?
We recommend at least 6†per 10 feet.

What do I need to do if I purchase a new boat?
The dolley is adjustable, so it may only be a matter of taking a few minutes to readjust the guide arms or possibly the dolley length.
