Serpent & Dove  adds a new pilot ladder magnet option to their existing range of Yellow Mag and Yellow Mag II products.

Serpent & Dove’s Yellow Mag and Yellow Mag II pilot ladder magnets have successfully been ensuring safety for marine pilots when boarding ships at sea by providing secure anchor points for the pilot ladder.

Yellow Mag II is a patent pending enhanced version of the original Yellow Mag and is much lighter and more easily deployed and removed from a ship’s hull. Flexible base plate and magnet mountings provide better grip on rough or curved surfaces.

Serpent & Dove has now added a new option for marine pilots with the introduction of the patent pending Sea-Mag. The new Sea-Mag pilot ladder magnet uses switchable permanent magnets at each end of an adjustable HDPE cross bar, which deploys right across the ropes of the pilot’s ladder.

Both the width of the bar and the height across the ropes can be adjusted while the flexibly mounted magnets provide excellent grip on rough or curved surfaces. The switchable permanent magnets require no electric power or batteries and are activated by an easy press and turn action of the T-bar handle.
