There is no end of LED lights available now, entire fixtures as well as replacement bulbs. But Dr. LED’s new 360-degree festoon bulb replacement caught our attention recently because it is an excellent replacement for the bulbs found in established Perko navigation light fixtures. There are thousands of such navigation light systems installed and the Dr. LED festoon is designed to replace the Perko Fig 71 bulb.

With increased electrical loads on larger boats these days, more marinas are being asked for 100A service when all they available on their dock is 50A service at a maximum. The new Hubbell Y Adapter will allow a safe marriage of two 50A outlets to one 100A cord to satisfy that demand from larger boats. The new YQ100Plus adapter is intelligent, in that it senses polarity and avoids any mis-wiring, using indicator lights to warn the operator if connections are correct or not. If needed, this adapter can also be used with only one 50A outlet band to balance the vessel needs with whatever power on the dock is available.

Overheating due to poor electrical conductivity is the #1 cause of shore power failure. Older plug designs are notorious for burning out as a result of loose connections and corrosion. SmartPlug's 30 amp connector and inlet have many features that greatly increase conductivity and reduce the possibility of overheating.
The 30 amp inlet contains a trip thermostat, which cuts power in the unlikely event of overheating. It's set to trip at 200ºF, just before wire insulation begins to soften, and restores the power once it has cooled back down to a safe temperature of around 120ºF.
The SmartPlug's sleeve design means that the body of the connector bears that tension, rather than the electrical pins.

Extending the cruising system is the aim of the newly introduced Climma reverse-cycle heating and cooling systems for boats from 20 to about 55 feet in length. The Climma Compact systems are well-engineered from Europe and use the best of heat-pump technology that provide both heat in the shoulder seasons and welcome cooling in the sultry summer months – both from one compact system. All the components are included with the necessary plumbing and controls. AC power is needed for the compressor but the fans and pumps can be wired to use onboard 12v power.
