Coastal Young Adventurer Sets Out to Sea in Hand Built Dory to Celebrate Coastal Preservation in NS Peter L'Esperance departed from Halifax’s Northwest Arm on Aug 1st, 2013 in his hand-crafted dory,to begin a 10 day rowing adventure in support of efforts to protect Nova Scotia’s coastal legacy.

Sta Lok Rigging HardwareSTA-LOK® stainless steel rigging hardware will be featured by rigging specialists Mack Sails (booth 1020), Sailing Services (booth 1027), Sparman (booth 921) and US Spars (booth 1000) at Strictly Sail Miami, Miamarina at Bayside, February 13-17. Precision engineered for reliability and performance, STA-LOK hardware is the choice of rigging professionals worldwide. The company recently introduced a range of spreader end tip cups designed specifically for wire rope 12mm – 19mm. The new, easy to install stainless steel

SeaCleanProblems caused by inefficient regeneration of a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) can be eliminated with the installation of a SeaClean Soot Filtration System (shown above) by marine exhaust system engineering, design, fabrication and service company DeAngelo Marine Exhaust.
The unique SeaClean system monitors the exhaust gas temperature and varies the power going to the heater element so that exhaust gas temperatures are constant. This allows a DPF to work properly so that collected soot is burnt off at high temperature, leaving only a tiny ash residue.

2Tinga Tunnel Hull DinghyOriginally developed for high-speed search and rescue use where the virtues of an inflatable boat are well-proven, but where speed and seaworthiness are equally important, the 2Tinga tunnel hull dinghies are now available in yacht tender designs and colours.

The tunnel hull design has another major benefit to yacht owners; it is easily towed, even at high speeds. Using your swim platform for a dinghy storage rack is not ideal and towing a dinghy at speed can be tricky and a waste of fuel too.

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.
