Given today’s Economy (or more importantly, the lack thereof) and realizing that the price of new James Brendel Safety Capsules are beyond the economic capabilities of some Teams, Hondo Boats Inc. has instituted a Cost Effective Program to Up Grade ANY Manufactures Capsules which do not meet Current Specifications to current Drag Boat Association’s Standards.
If interested, for information about this Program, please call Hondo Boats Inc. @ (925) 325-4967 .
Note: Hondo Boats Inc.’s New James Brendel Safety Capsules & TFD Driver’s Safety Enclosure Exceed all SFI Specifications and are Certified by the APBA, The Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) and the NHRA.
What has to be done to older capsules to bring them in to complience with the Rules depends on each capsule's condition before the upgrade so the price would vary from capsule to capsule, reflecting the various materials and the amount of work required. One of the most common upgrades required is the replacement of the older, non-compliant canopy latch and cable system.
For prices on new capsules or, older capsule upgrades, contact Brendel directly.
