An increase in demand for pilot ladder magnets manufactured by Serpent & Dove
has resulted in the company stepping up production of the safety system.
Also known as boom magnets, hull magnets or yellow-mags, Serpent & Dove’s improved and patented pilot ladder magnets have become a necessary safety requirement on ships, where the magnets are used to ensure a pilot ladder is firmly retained against the ship’s hull for the marine pilot to ascend or descend safely.
The use of magnets or similar means to secure pilot ladders to ship hulls has effectively been mandated by international marine pilot bodies for safety purposes.
Serpent and Dove’s pilot ladder magnets feature resin encapsulated rare earth magnet elements and other components powder-coated for marine environments.
