Pilot ladder magnets (also known as Boom Magnets, Hull Magnets, Yellow-Mags or ships magnetsWorldwide demand for Serpent & Dove's Yellow Mag Pilot Ladder Magnets has been exponential. Now, the Patented and improved Yellow Mag II is 33% lighter in weight and requires 15% less effort to remove, even though it has the same clamping strength. The use of magnets or similar means to secure pilot ladders to ship hulls has been mandated by international marine pilot bodies for safety purposes. In use, the magnets ensure that a pilot ladder is firmly retained against a ship's hull as a marine pilot ascends or descends.


Our consultants will provide knowledge and sensible answers.
