Ocean Technical Services, Inc. Ocean Technical Services, Inc. is an ISO-9002 certified full service shipyard and manufacturer of the Ocean Sprint Rigid Hull Inflatable Boats (RHIBs). Otech's reputation has been built on exceeding our customers' most stringent requirements. During construction, our highly skilled Fiberglass Division employs innovative technology and quality materials.

The hull has a unique deep-vee design that flattens to a delta conic planing curve at the transom and a series of concave spray chines that run the length of the boat. Together, they generate effects that give the RHIB an uncharacteristically dry ride and superior performance in the roughest seas. This innovative hull design was developed by Crompton Marine Ltd. (UK) after 18 years experience with RHIBs in hostile North Sea conditions. Licensed by Crompton and in conjunction with Sintes Fiberglass Designs, Otech has modified the series to incorporate a molded deck, a quick tube replacement system and the SCRIMP method of fiberglass construction.

Pelican ProductsPelican Products opened its doors in the old-fashioned, great American tradition, on a shoe string budget in an old backyard garage. It all started with a childhood infatuation with the underwater world. A 1949 Popular Science magazine article on homemade scuba outfits was the catalyst that triggered a life-long hobby. That hobby turned into an obsession for making diving related accessories that worked better than what store bought equipment had to offer. Then on one June day in 1975 Pelican Products just "happened". Dave Parker started selling his first invention and innovations to local dive shops as a tiny side business.

Dave's unique approach to superior quality, reliability, and basic "common sense" engineering soon attracted the interest of U.S. Special Forces, the Navy and industrial companies with equally demanding requirements. And so the Pelican legend began... Pelican Products now markets its quality products throughout the world with distribution centers in 4 countries.

VaughanVaughan Manufacturing: Long before "Ergonomics" became a buzz word; before "CTS" (Carpal Tunnel Syndrome) and "Tenosynovitis" became part of everyday language; back when "Epicondylitis" was still called "Carpenter’s Elbow" - Vaughan engineers were already busy taking the "sting" out of solid steel and fiberglass hammers. It was never a big secret that most professional carpenters preferred hickory handle hammers. Anyone who made a living swinging a hammer all day long didn’t have to be sold on the balance and shock absorbing properties of wood. But most steel and fiberglass hammers were another story. They never did feel "right." They lacked balance, felt awkward to swing, and there was always that bone jarring "sting" that traveled up the handle to wrist and elbow with every hammer blow.

Vaughan designers have improved the balance and shock absorbing qualities of fiberglass handle hammers while increasing the strength in the critical neck area. Vaughan Steel Eagle (R) solid steel hammers feature our exclusive, patented Shock-Blok® plug which virtually eliminates transmission of shock waves into the handle.

Vaughan products that bear this "Proud to Say" label are absolutely 100% made in the U.S.A. They are manufactured to the highest standards of quality under environmentally safe conditions. We are ISO 9002 certified. We do not exploit foreign labor nor their environments. We consciously use recycled and/or recyclable materials in all of our packaging and promotional materials.
