The Elastec BoomVane is stable in variable currents due to the rudder being spaced distantly from the vanes. The rudder ensures angle of attack is maintained, developing a constant tow. 10 plus vanes provide largest wetted surface area for overall size. Smaller units work in rivers due to adjustable rubber facilitating reversing of direction and feature the lowest possible draft to facilitate nearshore and river applications. The BoomVane disassembles for transport and lays flat for shipping. It has a proven track record with over 500 units sold and has been proven in multiple oil spills. Five sizes for are available for multiple environments from shallow rivers to deep offshore applications.
