Jim HanlonJim Hanlon has announced his plans to retire as Chief Executive Officer of the Centre for Ocean Ventures and Entrepreneurship (COVE) in 2020.
 
“I’m really proud of what we have accomplished at COVE”, said Jim. “At COVE, we’ve created a world-leading environment for ocean technology companies to come together and grow the ocean economy. It’s not a big surprise to the organization that I’m retiring, and I’m looking forward to seeing where COVE’s next leader will take us as COVE continues to grow and change”
 
Mr. Hanlon, with the late Colin MacLean (CEO of Waterfront Development, now Develop Nova Scotia), and Gordon Gale, President of OTCNS, were the early visionaries behind COVE. Several years of planning and financing resulted in a two-year site re-development with COVE officially opening in November 2018. To date, nearly 70 ocean technology companies have located at the facility, including small and medium sized companies, ocean technology start-ups and international companies.
 
Under Hanlon’s leadership, COVE received the Marine Technology Society 2019 Compass International Award during the 2019 Oceans Conference in Seattle, WA.
 
COVE’s Board of Directors is finalizing a recruitment strategy for the next CEO and further details of that process will be available shortly on COVE’s website: www.coveocean.com

UPDATE ON LUXURY TAX OPPOSITION

 

Luxury Tax OppositionFollowing its seventh annual “Day on the Hill” lobby day in Ottawa last month, NMMA Canada is continuing to advocate against the federal government’s proposed 10% luxury tax on recreational boats over $100,000. History has shown that similar taxes have failed to raise the expected revenue for governments while putting thousands of rural and small-town jobs at risk. The industry believes there are other financial measures that can be applied instead of a tax that would be beneficial to government and less impactful on industry.

HUBBELL CIRCUIT TESTER VERIFIES CONNECTIONS WITH EASE

Hubbell Circuit TesterChecking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.
