R & J Machine manufactures the ultimate in marine railway systems featuring ample strength and support to carry your boat with ease. Our tracks are designed with two truss rods to prevent warping under heavy loads and are attached with 1" pins, eliminating rusted nuts and bolts. There are attachment brackets for levellers, when required. All of our bunks are full-length to support your boat in the keel area and fully carpeted to prevent scratches. This method of support also allows for easy alignment when entering the carriage.

The wheels are flanged steel casters, designed for marine railway use, with grease fittings and brass bearings, supported front and back by twin support beams. Guide hooks keep the carriage from becoming derailed when loading during windy conditions. Adjustable guideposts, with scratch resistant material, guide your boat easily and safely onto the carriage. This feature will allow your boat to come within inches of your dock for easy boarding.

Manual or electric winches are available. The manual winch has an automatic brake that stops the cable if your hand should slip off the handle. The electric winch features a fully reversing motor with automatic overload protector. Remote controls, as well as push-pull winches, allow you to get your boat in and out of the water with ease. Aluminum tracks are also available for all models and feature the same unique features as our steel tracks, and they come in 6'6" lengths.


Cantilever lift-up tracks are available for installations with up to 45' of in-water track. All our carriages and steel tracks are galvanized for superior rust protection.

We also have shallow water carriages for minimal water depth and special carriages designed to carry fixed-keel sailboats and pontoon boats.

Cantilever lift tracks are available to allow you to simply crank the tracks up for winter storage.
