New York dealer works with TideSlide on post-Sandy rebuild

Staten Island Yacht Sales & Marina decided to incorporate TideSlide mooring systems into the new facility when it was rebuilt.

After Hurricane Sandy devastated Staten Island, N.Y., Staten Island Yacht Sales & Marina decided to incorporate TideSlide mooring systems into the new facility when it was rebuilt.

Together, the businesses worked to provide maximum protection for the structure and clients.

The dealership installed commercial/military-grade TideSlides featuring hardened stainless-steel shafts in every slip.

"As the facilities manager of Staten Island Yacht Sales for the past 25 years, it's great knowing that in the unlikely event that we experience another Hurricane Sandy, we have provided our customers with the absolute best mooring system available for our and their yachts," Staten Island Yacht Sales and marina facilities manager Frank Gunther said in a statement. "Simply put, there is absolutely no better way to secure your vessel than by using TideSlides."

Storm-tested, the TideSlide system is designed utilizing the Navy’s heavy weather mooring codes and is built to withstand the harshest environments and worst weather. It increases the chances of a boat surviving a catastrophic storm or hurricane.

Constructed for long-term use, the patented, self-lubricating TideSlide uses a polymer mooring block. It prevents inertial loading, increasing the overall strength of the lines, cleats and dock. The system's vertical movement absorbs built-up energy, allowing a boat to be held with wind, waves and tides present.

"TideSlide is proud to be a partner with Staten Island Yacht Sales and Marina," said Mark Baluha, PSI Marine president. "We're already working with many other facilities in the area affected by tides and storms to improve and strengthen their marinas and yacht clubs in preparation for future storms and long-term use."
