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.
