Hope for the best, plan for the worst. Even the most careful boaters can sometimes be caught off guard, which is why it’s a good idea to be sure you have everything you need on board in case of an emergency. Just Marine recently demonstrated two easy-to-use products that aim to do just that.
A clean fuel tank, a safe voyage, a barnacle-free hull and peace of mind—the companies in this issue of our newsletter help bring you just that.
You know only captains and crew could have come up with this: a compact, sturdy and inflatable platform that allows doing some hull maintenance without taking a swim or having to unload the tender. It’s called VersilFloat and it is a versatile tool for work or play.
Underwater photographic equipment maker SeaLife has created a premier package for divers who want to record their time exploring the world beneath the seas. Called the DC1400 Pro Duo, the unit blends a feature-packed, easy-to-use, 14-megapixel underwater camera with a powerful 500-lumen, three-in-one LED photo/video light and a Digital Pro Flash.
Raymarine adds two applications to their product lineup: the RayRemote and the RayControl. DeLorme's already award-winning inReach device is now compatible with Apple mobile devices. And for those yachts not required to carry a Class-A AIS transponder, Digital Deep Sea has a compact solution.

Anderson Software has unveiled a new cloud-based application that enables boat owners to conveniently schedule dry stack launches, marina valet and concierge services, and boat repairs using any PC, tablet or Web-enabled smart phone.
