Beyond pulling the plug and lowering the engine, we instruct users to drain every water compartment on their boat. The vacuum is a powerful wet/dry vacuum with a 30 foot hose. It allows for easy draining and cleaning of the hard-to-reach puddles in live wells and engine compartments. The vacuum tank ensures all waste is properly disposed of.

CD3 Systems can come equipped with a powerful air blower for drying watercraft compartments. It’s strong enough to effectively blow out wet areas like the propeller, while still meeting safety standards. It's specially designed tip allows safe drying and cleaning, even at very close range. The dryer can also be used to dry and clean fishing gear or any other smaller wet items. 


Any weeds or debris on the boat or trailer can easily be vacuumed up for disposal, clean and worry-free! Additionally, we recommend using composting or garbage containers as part of your site design.

CD3 stations aren’t just a simple tool. We quantify use, guide maintenance and assess value through an internet connected, cutting-edge suite of sensors and data logging technologies. Data is updated in real time and can be viewed remotely through a secure owner portal. Thus turning a simple boat launch into a “smart boat launch."


Founded in behavior change psychology, our online instructional resources walk users through boat specific instructions. We can also customize our instructional resources for your state or region's specific needs. The exterior graphics are completely customizable to meet your design or outreach needs. For additional consultation on your campaigns for stopping AIS, we can help too.
