Raymarine launches Gyro Stabilised Thermal Night VisionRaymarine launches Gyro Stabilised Thermal Night Vision

On release to the Australian market at Sanctuary Cove International Boat show is the newest addition to the Raymarine family of thermal night vision products for boaters, the T470SC gyro-stabilised thermal camera.

Using internal gyroscopes that compensate for vessel movement automatically, the T470SC’s active gyro-stabilisation provides a steady image when seas are rough. Now boaters can have the best of both worlds: the power to see small objects from great distances, and smooth imagery on the open water.

The T470SC also has a colour TV camera with a continuous zoom lens that automatically matches its field of view to that of the thermal camera, so users won’t get disoriented when switching between cameras.
Housed in a rugged, waterproof gimbal enclosure that provides continuous 360° pan and +/-90° tilt capability, theT470SC provides horizon-to-horizon thermal imaging or low light colour camera coverage.

International Paints can save her!International Paints can save her!

Would you believe that by simply using International Paint’s range of resins, glues and paint systems that you could restore this run down wreck into a modern and attractive vessel?

International’s sales and marketing team did just that … well to half of the boat anyway.

They purchased this very run down vessel for $200, hired a shed near their office and refurbished one half of the boat leaving the other half untouched. The contrast clearly demonstrates the difference International products can make to the aesthetics, not to mention the value, of your boat.

Come and see the end result at Sanctuary Cove Boat Show where the boat will be on display. While you’re there ask for a copy of our booklet detailing how the half-boat project was achieved and discuss your boat’s refurbishment with International’s team of experts.

Anchor RightAustralian anchor technology holds up

Tough times and an abundance of new anchor technology have not fazed Anchor Right Australia. Rex of Anchor Right states his anchor technology has now proven itself as good as, if not better than the world has to offer, the Super Sarca certified with Super High Holding Power has seen an encouraging demand of his larger anchors as they are now being installed by many Australian and New Zealand boat builders.

Rex’s more recent anchor design, the Excel, is also certified with Super High Holding Power. The influx of new generation anchors are mostly in concave shape, the concave designs are proving to be problematic on retrieval by bringing large clumps of mud wedged into the concave, whereas the Excel and Super Sarca being of convex design, come up clean leaving the mud behind.
