Veratron LinkUp Expanded FamilyVeratron has expanded its Innovation Award-winning LinkUp suite to include a 24V Intelligent Battery Monitor and a second-generation (Gen II) version of the 12V variant, and a J1939 single function gateway module.

Ritchie CompassMagnetic compasses can do something no GPS can: display an actual heading. Add fog, tossing seas, or loss of power, and the need for a 4-1/2" SS-2000 SuperSport™ Navigator from Ritchie Navigation is clear. Ideal for commercial and recreational vessels, it delivers precise readings without the dial oscillation common with competing products.

Seasucker BinocularsBinoculars are a valuable tool on board any boat but they're often stowed, rather than within reach, when needed. The new Binoculars Pocket from SeaSucker mounts temporarily to any clean, non-porous surface to keep optics close at hand, whether on deck or below.

Hubbell AdapterThe common method of powering party lights or an electric polisher while at the dock is to run an electric extension cord down the companionway, creating an unsightly trip hazard. With a Hubbell Marine HBL105GF adapter, it's easy to instead use a 30A 125V marina power pedestal to run 15A 125V devices.

Webasto SunroofsWebasto, the global leader in marine roofing, A/C and fuel-operated heating solutions, has manufactured its 8,000th boat sunroof. The 40 Series Electric Marine Sliding Sunroof is destined for installation on a Chaparral 317 SSX.

XPS Maintenance ProductsIt's like sunscreen for your boat. XPS Marine Care Products offer maximum protection from weathering and fading from sun and harsh summer environment. Sea-Doo watercraft incorporate the most modern construction materials and maintaining them with purpose produced XPS products will help ensure your vessel looks new for a long time.

Trumpet HornsWhistles may satisfy regulatory requirements and function as sound-producing devices, but they pale in comparison to a true horn. Not only do Deluxe All Stainless-Steel Trumpet Horns from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products produce a serious, attention-grabbing tone, but they also add a luxurious nautical appearance to any boat style.

JMP Minor Service KitWith a raw water engine cooling pump, it's rarely the expensive cast and machined bronze body that needs replacing. That's why Major and Minor Service Kits from JMP Corporation make so much sense. They include everything needed to get most competitors' and all JMP flexible impeller pumps back to 100%, at a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire unit.
