Will this put too much stress on my boat?

LilliPad’s Innovation Award winning design cancels the energy of the jumper by counteracting the force within the framework of the diving board. The result? Exciting spring-action for the jumper, a gentle wave-action for the remaining boaters and very little stress on the boat.

What safety features does the LilliPad Diving Board offer?

LilliPad Diving Boards offer traction materials and an adjustable stabilizer rail for stability. In addition, LilliPad Diving Boards are designed with a quick release pin (that is often kept with the boat keys) and needed to engage the diving platform for use. Thus, the captain of the boat is responsible for positioning the boat in safe water (minimum of 15 feet with no obstructions) prior to engaging the diving board. The quick release pin is also used to adjust the tension of the diving board and to lower the diving board while the boat is in motion, for docking, or trailering.

LilliPad Diving Boards are built to last. Designed with heavy wall aluminum extrusions, stainless steel hardware and urethane spring components, corrosion and component failure is absolutely minimal.

LilliPad Diving Boards are designed with a quick release pin which allows the diving platform to drop down along the side of the boat while not in use.

Is it difficult to remove the diving board from the boat to stow?

You can easily stow your Lillipad Diving Board by simply unscrewing the three eye bolts that secure it to the boat. The apparatus then separates into three parts (Stabilizer Handle, Ladder, Base/Board) which can easily be stowed. A LilliPad Diving Board Cover is always recommended for use during storage. The diving board cover not only protects the diving board but also pulls the components together for ease of transport.

Do I need to remove the diving board while trailering my boat?

In most cases your LilliPad Diving Board does not need to be removed for trailering. For safe trailering, we recommend locking the stabilizer handle into the lowered position and installing your LilliPad Diving Board Cover which secures the diving platform to the shock tube and protects the board from the elements.
