Although many of our customers will do the installation themselves, the following is a list of some experienced installers that have been referred to us.

We encourage Hydrovane owners who know of skilled tradesmen or boatyards with Hydrovane installation experience to provide the co-ordinates to us and we will include them on this page.

Any skilled trades-person can do the job. Ensure your installer reads our instructions, and that you read our Warnings Cheat Sheet to see where mistakes could be made. See Technical/Instructions.
