My SeaKnees Testimonial by Robert Brandenburg
“My first exposure to Sea Knees came about two years ago. Paul Nowack, the inventor and I have known each other for more than twenty years. We have shared many adventures, had many opportunities, and watched others take common sense ideas and create successful products. The products succeeded because they met a need that people recognized. “Sea Knees” is one of those products.
In the early years of our association, we both shared a love for the water and boating. I spend most of my time on Lake Michigan fishing for Salmon and Smallmouth Bass, and Paul had a need for speed, becoming well known among the river boaters of the Fox River in Northern Illinois and Off-Shore Poker Runs along the coastlines of Florida.
From different backgrounds and experiences, we both discovered that there are times when the best position to pilot a boat is from a standing position. At speed, with certain sea conditions, a great deal of energy was required, and much fatigue induced, by the constant impact of the hull of the boat with the water. What we were experiencing was “shock.”
Both of us boaters, and many of you with many hours on the water, discovered that we could make a “better ride” by standing on the balls of our feet, elevating our heels, to “mitigate” this shock. But for those of you that also discovered this concept, there was a downside. You could only stand on the balls of your feet for a limited amount of time before your legs began to cramp from the unnatural position. This is how most people first experience “shock mitigation.” Using the natural ability of the body to absorb shock, we were able to go further and faster in heavy sea conditions in our boats.
So how do you eliminate or mitigate boat cramping and boat fatigue? Well, Paul’s idea was, “you put the body back into a more natural position.” One our muscles are familiar with, but at the same time keep the energy from being transmitted directly to our body, feet, legs, hips, spine, shoulders, neck and head by allowing our heels to “float” above the deck.
The boat fatigue solution is Sea Knees. An elegant and simple invention that allows the natural action of the body to absorb energy without putting our skeletal muscular system in an unnatural position. Sea Knees allows our heels to float above the deck, while maintaining a normal stance and providing “Shock Mitigation” while standing.
There are many circumstances where standing is the best solution to piloting your boat. If you’re sitting in a chair, Sea Knees will not help you. However should circumstances such as sea conditions, visibility or pleasure make standing the best position, Sea Knees – Shock Mitigation for the Standup Boater is the best available solution for shock mitigation from waves.
SeaKnees help build on the body’s natural ability to absorb shock while relieving the stress of an unnatural posture, Sea Knees augments the body’s ability to mitigate shock while simultaneously reducing fatigue. “Sea Knees” will improve the standup experience of any boater on any boat.”
Sea Knees is a boat shock mitigation boat strategy that greatly reduces the impact on the knees and other joints in the body from boat shock caused by waves and chop. A boat shock mitigation strategy is essential for all crafts that undertake open sea transits or operate in rough or choppy local water.
Sea Knees is Trade Marked and Patent Pending.
CAUTION – When on Sea Knees, the best riding boats are improved so much, that care should be taken, to not overdrive the boat and consideration given for any passengers not on Sea Knees.
A message from Paul Nowack the president and owner:
I’m here to assist and service boats, boaters, standup boaters, boat companies and boating organizations with all their boat shock mitigation needs for a best riding boat.
