GS-1000 Electro-Hydraulic Outrigger Mount
The GS-1000 electro-hydraulic system allows boaters to safely adjust outriggers from the comfort of the helm with the simple push of a button. The GS-1000’s microprocessor-controlled system adjusts lift from 0º through 75º with incremental stops at 30º, 45º and 60º.
Lift and rotation are driven by a 1,000-PSI hydraulic pump, which is routed through a micro-controlled manifold and valve assemblies. The GS-1000 is installed flush with the top, allowing the hydraulic lines and wiring to be hidden below the mount. For added safety, the outward rotation cannot take place without the release of the locking mechanism at the control panel.
The heavy-duty GS-1000 can easily handle outrigger poles as long as 24’.
GS-950 Electric Anchor & Stern Light
With the simple push of a button, boaters can safely adjust the position of their Anchor & Stern Light from the comfort of the helm with the new GS-950. Ideal for powered vessels 39’ and under (12-meters and under), the GS-950 is certified for USCG-required 2 nautical miles. The GS-950 is a fully electric unit with hidden wires inside the hardtop. This mount easily installs to the surface of the hardtop and fits all top thicknesses. The GS-950 lights operate on 12 volts and consist of four 3-watt LED Cree chips driven by two Mean Well drivers.
GS-850 Electric VHF Antenna Mount
Introducing the all new Grand Slam 850 Electric VHF Antenna Mount! Designed with safety and innovation in mind, boaters can adjust the position of their VHF antenna with the simple push of a button from the comfort of their helm. The GS-850 is a fully electric unit with hidden wires inside the hardtop. This mount easily installs to the surface of the hardtop and fits all top thicknesses.

Siesta Sport Chair
Introducing the classy, yet functional Siesta Sport Chair. Beginning at the top, the Siesta’s unique design features a sporty tapered head support, which is less bulky around the crest than other chairs. Down the center of the chair’s body and wrapping down the front of the bolster is a stylish diamond pattern, which adds to the chair’s overall opulence.
Siesta Sport Bench
The same great features as the innovative Siesta Sport Chair, but available as a 45" bench! Like all our made-in-the-USA helm seats, the Siesta Sport Bench is made from premium quality, marine-grade vinyl fabric treated with anti-microbial and UV stabilizers. These come with plush, anti-bacterial foam padding, which provides durable support and protection from mold and mildew.

Constructed from high-grade stainless steel and brass, our Command Ratchet Hinge is ideal for sunpads, bolsters and lounge backrests. This specialty hinge has a 15º locking inclination and ratchets up to four positions.
Command Ratchet Hinge, 18-1/2"

Adaptability to varied seatback widths also allows for unique applications, such as fold-down transom seats, hideaway tables and access doors.
