Like other valuables, doesn’t it seem reasonable that fuel tanks should be kept under lock and key? 

Perko makes it easy to retrofit a sturdy locking mechanism in the majority of their 1-1/2" vented and non-vented fills. The black plastic 0525 Fuel System Locking Insert comes with a high-strength zinc alloy lock cylinder.  When slid into the fill, spring action retracts the cams, which then lock onto the hose bib once the device is fully inserted.  A handy dual purpose key opens the protective metal fill cap and operates the lock.  Installation is easy, usually with no tools.

Removing the 0525 is simple.

Boston Whaler expands its classic Montauk selection with the release of the rugged new 210 Montauk. Entering the lineup as Whaler’s largest Montauk yet, the 210 carries on the line’s legacy of incredible functionality and durability while making the most of its increased size to expand on these qualities.

“With the popularity of our smaller Montauks and the value they provide, the 210 Montauk delivers upon that mission from a larger scale,” said Ron Berman, Boston Whaler’s vice president of product development and engineering.

If you were to check the running lights on every boat in your marina, we bet you would find that many have defective lights. The stern light is often the problem as lines and people snag or grab them. They're often stowed to save space and eliminate visual obstruction.  Rather than removing them, where they can be lost or damaged, Perko's Fold Down White All-Round Lights simply fold out of the way.

The lights are certified for use on sail or power vessels under 65.6'.  Perko's designs include options with either a white translucent globe, or reduced-glare versions with a frosted globe or a black plastic top and clear fluted lens.

A revolutionary step forward in temperature management, the i5 Headwind Jacket is a dynamic mid-layer product that uses innovative “Thermal gate” technology to keep the user in the comfort zone. This is not an evolutionary step by Gill in body temperature management but, a whole new technology in the marine market.

The thermal ‘gates’, or micro-spaces, in between fibers in the i5 Headwind Jacket create a dynamic structure, and ‘close up’ when colder to achieve maximum thermal efficiency, and ‘open’ when warmer to allow excess heat to escape.

Steering systems must be properly maintained to perform optimally and safely.  Lubrication goes a long way in the fight against corrosion, friction and wear.  Whether as part of end-of-season storage or ongoing upkeep, Davis offers solutions to help maintain steering system health.

Cable Buddy is a kit designed to lubricate inside the steering cable jacket for inboard, outboard and I/O engines.  It virtually eliminates corrosion and all wear in the inner cable, where most problems occur.  When used properly, Cable Buddy also prevents freezing to -40°F.

For cruising yachtsmen or those who just find this interesting, comes a new iPhone App from the inventor of the Krieger Tidal Chronometer. The App is called the ChronGlobal Tidal Chronoscope.

The ChronGlobal Tidal Chronoscope offers a sophisticated, virtual wristwatch featuring the current level of worldwide tides, along with lunar and solar position at your location.

“The Coastal” Keelboat Vest by Salus Marine Wear just received Coast Guard Approval for your sailing enjoyment starting this spring. “The Coastal” Keelboat Vest is inherently buoyant rather than being an inflatable, so it is actually lighter in weight and can provide safety and protection while sailing and racing.
 
The big news for keelboat sailors at all levels, is that “The Coastal” Keelboat Vest by Salus features a built-in harness, so you can tether yourself and you can adjust the harness as needed. The vest’s design uses round edges for comfort and maximum mobility around the decks plus, “The Coastal” has a Dri-Lex liner that is breathable for best comfort on hot days and during heavy racing.
