  7. Significantly increased marina profit levels from consistent 90%+ use of all linear feet due to double or triple boats in a single row
  8. Significant sales advantge publics draw to new innovative technology over competitions problimatic forklift system. Better technology, significant advantages and “show” of system opens additional market to steal existing customers from several nearby existing dry stack marinas increasing market share to draw from.
  9. All automation compenents backed by Rockwell Automation. Largest automation firm in USA in existence for over 100 years
  10. Two year full parts / labor warranty with optional 20+ years full parts/labor extended warranty available with one call to Rockwell Automation worldwide service and parts organization
  11. Local service personnel
  12. Increase number of boats up to 55% over marina bull I or bull II forklifts or same number of boats on half the land
  13. Low skilled operators – can be done with no operators if kiosk method chosen.
  14. Quiet electric powered & ecology friendly
  15. Rockwell Automation 24/7/365 online and phone service , system maintenance monitoring and advance notifications with 99+ % up running time reliability always.
  16. Substantial increased yearly income from sales of fuel, food, alcohol, diners and repairs , etc. because of up to 55% additional boats within an Aero-Dock marina.
  17. Larger boat customers 40-75+ ft offer much more dependable income/long term customer. CUSTOMER BOATS LARGER THAN 46FT ARE A NEW UNTAPPED MARKET AFFORDING HIGHER PER FT INCOME ONLY YOUR AERO-DOCK MARINA CAN STORE inside a hurricane proof building.
