TACO Marine® GS-1000 Electro-Hydraulic Outrigger Mount
Receives 2019 Boating Industry Top Product Award

TACO Marine® GS-1000 outrigger mount

MIAMI, FLORIDA (USA) – The TACO Marine® GS-1000 Electro-Hydraulic Outrigger Mount has been named a 2019 Top Product Award winner by Boating Industry magazine.

An innovative breakthrough in sport fishing technology, the GS-1000 can safely lift and rotate poles from the comfort of the helm with the simple push of a button. Gone are the days of climbing on gunnels and having to struggle with manual adjustments. The electro-hydraulic design and microprocessor-controlled system adjusts the angle of lift from 0 to 75 degrees with incremental stops at 30, 45 and 60 degrees. A 1,000-PSI hydraulic pump drives both the lift and rotation. It is designed to be surface mounted on the hardtop with all hydraulic lines and wiring concealed inside the top.

For added security and safety, rotation cannot take place without the release of the locking mechanism at the control panel. The GS-1000 mates with the TACO Marine 20’ and 24’ Pro Series Carbon Fiber Twist & Lock Tele-Outriggers, which contain a patent-pending Twist & Lock install feature.

TACO Marine® VP Bill Kushner
Speaks Out On Trade Tariffs
On Public Radio International

TACO Marine® Vice President Bill Kushner

MIAMI, FLORIDA (USA) – While President Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to halt, temporarily at least, an escalating trade war between the two nations, the existing tariffs on imported raw materials widely used in the marine industry have already taken their toll.

In a story last week broadcast by Public Radio International (PRI), TACO Marine® Vice President of Material Management Bill Kushner (shown right) said “In essence, it’s isolationism and protectionism that is going to keep us from really being a part of the global economy.”

TACO Marine®, a division of TACO Metals®, Inc., designs, manufactures and distributes a wide range of products, including Rub Rail, Hardware & Accessories, Canvas & Tower Fabrication, Seating, Sport Fishing equipment and custom/specialty products. While the company manufactures its products in the USA, the steel and aluminum used are imported and being hit with a tariff.

Top TACO Marine® Products For Spring

MIAMI, FLORIDA (USA) – Spring is the perfect time for boat refitting and equipment upgrades. Here are the top TACO Marine® products that will help get a boat ready for the upcoming boating season.

Grand Slam Outrigger Mount
TACO Marine GS 400 Outrigger Mount

TACO Marine® Grand Slam Outrigger Mounts are perfect for anglers with any size boat up to and surpassing 50 feet. Manufactured with high-quality, durable stainless steel and machined aluminum, our Outrigger Mounts are guaranteed for years of trouble-free use and backed by our industry-leading 3-year warranty.

For larger fishing boats, we offer our Grand Slam Professional Series Mounts, which are perfect for high-performance sport fishing at high speeds.








Center Rigger Mounts
TACO Marine GS 312 Center Rigger Mount

Introducing the new TACO Marine Center Rigger Mounts – designed for longer center rigger poles and for the offshore performance requirements of large center console boats equipped with triple and quad engines.

The new GS-312 (shown right) and the GS-314 increase the efficiency of deploying long baits or lures when trolling offshore by using the innovative rotating-lever handle to raise and lower the center rigger from under the hardtop. As the center console boat market continues to grow, so does the increase in boat length and width – leading to an increased desire to compete with the larger sport fishing boat.






Outrigger Poles
TACO Marine Carbon Fiber Outrigger Pole

Compliment your TACO Marine Outrigger Mounts with our Aluminum or Carbon Fiber Outrigger Poles. Our patented Aluminum Tele-Outrigger Poles are strong and sturdy, even in the roughest seas with multiple trolling lines. They pair with the Grand Slam 400, 380, 280, 170 or a striker base. The Aluminum Poles are available in 15- and 18-feet long.

Our award-winning Carbon Fiber Tele-Outrigger Poles feature our patent-pending swivel rollers, which allow for a more natural bait presentation and provide less halyard line chafing, and our patent-pending Twist & Lock mechanism for easy pole installation. These pair with our Grand Slam Pro Series 450 and 500 Mounts and are available in 16- and 20-feet long.




Rigging Kits
TACO Marine rigging kit

Complete your TACO Outrigger system with one of our halyard line Rigging Kits.

Choose from seven different kits for your outrigger needs, including a center rigger kit, the double mono rigging kit and the premium triple-braid rigging kit. These kits are designed to fill all your rigging needs to get you on the water quickly.




Outrigger Line Tensioner
TACO Marine outrigger line tensioner

We also have the TACO Marine Outrigger Line Tensioner, which is designed for larger boats fishing with double or triple halyard lines on each outrigger. The Outrigger Line Tensioner helps keep proper tension on outrigger halyards while fully extended and tight.

With its easily adjustable halyard tension, it makes changing locations quick and easy – no more storing your halyard lines in order to make a move. Manufactured from stainless steel Type-316, the Outrigger Line Tensioner is adjustable for boats with 1- to 2-1/2-inch thick gunnels. It comes with an Easy Ronstan medium cam cleat for 1/8- to 1/2-inch thick rope and is backed by our 1-year warranty.




Vinyl Rub Rail Kits
TACO Marine rub rail kit

Give your boat the ultimate facelift with brand new TACO Marine Rub Rail. Replacing outdated, faded or damaged Rub Rail is one of the quickest and low-cost solutions for improving your boat’s appearance. We offer seven premium Vinyl Rub Rail Kits, which are available in various sizes to match almost any boat on the market. Choose from Flexible Rub Rail, Semi-Rigid Rub Rail or Semi-Rigid with a Chrome Insert.




Dockside Accessories
TACO Marine dockside accessories

The Come On Board Handles improve safety and accessibility and feature a large grabbing surface with finger-molded pipe for a secure, comfortable grip. Easily step down onto gunnels while gripping the Come On Board Handle – helping to prevent dangerous slips and falls during boarding.

The Shore Power Cable Holder features a large ring that accommodates 30-, 50- and 100-amp power cables and is equipped with an adjustable height ring.

If you’re connected to shore power, do it safely with the adjustable TACO Marine Shore Power Cable Holder, which elevates power cables out of the water between your boat and the dock.




Transom Cross Tie Portable Cleat
TACO Marine transom cross tie cleat

The Transom Cross Tie Portable Cleat secures dock lines up and away from outboard motors and fits standard rod holders.

Prevent your dock lines from getting tangled in outboard props with our Transom Cross Tie – a 30-inch tall portable cleat that elevates lines up and away from motors when tying off at the stern. Our patent-pending latch mechanism at the base allows for easy insertion and hold into standard rod holders.




Quick Release Fender Lock
TACO Marine fender lock

Introducing the Quick Release Fender Lock – perfect for dockside safety and made with Type-316 stainless steel. The Fender Lock comes with a 3-year warranty.

For dockside safety and convenience, our new TACO Marine Quick Release Fender Lock ensures secure, quickly stored fender lines. At the dock, you simply insert the pin into the fitting and your boat is protected with the fenders in an ideal position. When using chum bags, it’s a great way to never have to search for a place to hang it again.




Adjustable Poly Filet Tables
TACO Marine filet table

Filet your fresh-caught fish on our easy-to-clean TACO Marine Adjustable Poly Filet Table, which is made from FDA-approved, high-density polyethylene that will not discolor, crack, mildew or absorb fish odors.

Available in 20- and 30-inch widths, our filet tables are perfect for cutting bait, fileting fish or serving food and beverages. These tables also feature a storage slot to safely stow filet knives and fishing pliers. The universal, adjustable mount is corrosion resistant and made to fit all standard size rod holders. The quick release ergonomic knob allows for quick angle adjustment and flat storage when not being used. All fasteners are stainless marine-grade quality.




Poly Drink Holders

Lastly, equip your boat with one of our Poly Drink Holders, which are perfectly sized for tumblers up to 32 ounces, cans and water bottles. These made-in-the-USA drink holders are available as a single or double tumbler, with or without a cell phone or catch-all slot.

Our Poly Tumbler Holders easily attach to boat surfaces with suction cups and are manufactured using UV-stabilized, high-density Polymer. This is a must-have, go-to accessory for any size boat.

TACO Marine products will also be available for sale at the show in the booths of participating dealers SeaGear Marine Supply (booth 446) and Connley Fishing (booth 535).

New Grand Slam 400 Outrigger Mount
TACO Marine GS 400 Outrigger Mount

TACO Marine® now offers the higher-performance Grand Slam Pro Series 400 Outrigger Top Mount – specifically designed for boat lengths surpassing 50 feet and quad engines exceeding 1600 horsepower. The center console market continues to grow and so does the size of its vessels and the engines that power them. The new GS-400 upgrade in strength easily handles the increasing outrigger pole lengths in both Aluminum and Carbon Fiber for up to 30 feet. Come by the TACO Marine booth and experience the difference with this new high-performance outrigger top mount.








Carbon Fiber Outrigger Poles – NMMA Product Innovation Award Winner
TACO Marine Carbon Fiber Outrigger Pole

Winner of an NMMA Product Innovation Award in the fishing tackle, gear and accessories category, TACO Marine® Carbon Fiber Outrigger Poles are stronger and lighter than any aluminum poles on the market. The carbon fiber design has the strength built into it to allow for today’s modern fishing techniques of pulling small dredges of ballyhoo, mullet or squids through the water at higher speeds, which would be difficult to achieve with aluminum poles.

The patent-pending swivel roller mechanism allows for live baits or artificial lures to have a more natural swimming action, which results in hooking up more fish. The Tele-Outrigger version (shown here) telescopes to less than 8 feet for bridge clearance, trailering and storage. It’s sold in pairs with two models (16 feet with double rollers for double line rigging and 20 feet with triple rollers for triple line rigging) and is available for boats up to 50 feet.





New 4-LED Flat Mount Deck Light
TACO Marine 4 LED Flat Mount Deck Light

Available in white or black housing, this unique, low-profile LED multi-purpose light is ideal for hard tops, canvas tops, under consoles, cabin interiors, under gunnels and in bait wells. With its ignition protection certification, it is also an ideal light for bilge compartments, battery compartments, engine rooms or inside consoles. It features powerful 700 lumen output with a 100-degree spread beam angle with a high impact, UV-resistant polycarbonate house. Mounting options Stainless Steel Swivel Bracket or as a fixed mount application. This light is available in white LED.





Come On Board Handle
TACO Marine Come On Board Handle

The TACO Marine® Come On Board Handle (fixed mount shown right) features a large grabbing surface and is ideal for boats where constant boarding is necessary.

A unique finger molded handle pipe design assures a more secure and comfortable grip. The two-piece handle stores easily in a mesh bag (included) that won’t scratch boat surfaces. Additional fixed mount receivers are available for multiple boarding positions, such as gunnels or dive platforms. A rod holder-mounted model is also available.





Shore Power Cable Holder
TACO Marine Shore Power Cable Holder

The Shore Power Cable Holder is the ideal way for boats to be hooked up to a power source at the dock. The large ring is designed to accommodate 30-, 50- and 100-amp shore power cables and features an adjustable height ring to compensate for low or high tide settings.

The holder stores easily in a mesh bag (included) for easy drying if stored wet and to avoid scratching deck or storage surfaces.

The Command Ratchet Hinge will be featured at Brunger Export (TACO Marine’s international representative, Hall 12, Booth 408) at METSTRADE 2017 in Amsterdam next week.

This longer ratchet hinge allows for one locking position at 61.5 degrees that is 2-in. tall and 2-1/4-in. wide. The Command Ratchet Hinge mounts above deck and can be used for seat backs up to 22 in. – perfect for single- or double-seat capacity and tested up to 500-ft. pounds of torque per pair and 600-pounds of vertical load on a 22-in. seat back.



The TACO Marine stand will also feature easy-to-install TACO Marine® Rub Rail kits.

Replacing damaged or worn out rub rail is easy and cost effective with TACO Marine’s complete rub rail kits.

TACO Marine rub rail kit

TACO Marine® offers a full product line of rub rail replacement kits for all sizes of boats, in a convenient and easy carry box that’s also easy to ship. Each kit includes all items needed for full replacement of rub rail, including stainless steel fasteners, end caps and in some profiles, the insert. All kits are available in one-piece continuous coils of flexible or semi-rigid vinyl.

The TACO Marine® web site provides useful and informative resources beginning with a Rub Rail Replacement Guide, which helps service yards and boat owners match up original factory installed rub rail for most all of the popular boat brands, as well as a step-by-step installation video.

TACO Marine® has been designing and manufacturing rub rail for nearly 60 years. All kits are backed by TACO Marine’s industry leading, five-year warranty.

Taco Marine GS 500 Outrigger Mount

Taco Marine now offers a higher performance outrigger mount with our 500 series specifically designed for boat lengths surpassing 50 feet and quad engines exceeding 1600 horsepower. The center console market continues to grow and so does the size of its vessels and the engines that power them. The new GS-500 upgrade in strength easily handles the increasing outrigger pole lengths in both Aluminum and Carbon Fiber for up to 30 feet. The new proprietary twist-‘n-lock design with a visual indicator offers the quickest and most secure connection made between a mount and an outrigger. Experience the difference with this new high-performance series of outrigger mounts.



New Grand Slam 312 Center Rigger Mount
Taco Marine GS 312 Center Rigger Mount

Taco Marine introduces a new center rigger mount designed for longer center rigger poles and for the offshore performance requirements of the large center console boats on the market today that are equipped with triple and quad engines. The new GS-312 increases the efficiency of deploying long baits when trolling offshore by using the innovative rotating lever handle to raise and lower the center rigger from under the hard top. As the center console boat market continues to grow, so does the increase in boat length and width, which has led to an increased desire to compete with the larger sport fishing boats.





New Pontoon Fender Lock
Taco Marine Pontoon Fender Lock

Taco Marine introduces the latest in a line of accessories intended for easy docking along with safety and convenience. Make your docking experience as effortless as possible. Quickly set your fender lines at the desired length off the side of your pontoon boat. The line remains at optimum length with the mounting pin attached. At the dock, you simply insert the pin into the fitting and your pontoon boat is protected with the fenders in their ideal position. Designed for 1-1/4 inch square tube used on most pontoon boats today.
