I think they'd need some seed money to give away a couploe of dozen thousand of them to major marina chains, in order to prime the pump and give boat owners a reason to buy them. And then, other marinas a reason to use them.

Or convince insurers that they are so much safer, marinas using them deserve an insurance break big enough to cover the cost of buying them.
