LED Light

Small, eco-friendly and tough enough for boating and the outdoors, the SolLight RailLight from Davis Instruments delivers brilliant illumination to cockpits, cabins or decks without owners having to drill holes, run wires or worry about draining batteries. The RailLight is a stainless steel, solar-powered LED light that quickly and securely clamps onto any railing from 7/8" to 1-1/4" diameter with a tough nylon clamp that adjusts the light to any height or angle.
 
Attaching in seconds, the RailLight Premium provides enough light for dining or even reading. A built-in sensor automatically turns the light off during daylight, while a protected switch enables users to turn off the light manually or switch to low power to conserve energy. Its sealed epoxy and coated stainless housing sheds water, while all four LEDs are rated for over 10,000 hours. The four, super-bright white LEDs are housed in a double Fresnel lens system so that the light can be seen over 1/4 mile away.
 
The RailLight provides light up to eight hours on a full charge of sunlight. Since it is mounted outside, it is always charging, whether rain or shine. Each RailLight has a built-in circuit to protect the replaceable Ni-Cad batteries from overcharging.
 
Making boating safer and adding nightlight ambience, the RailLight is ideal for mounting on boarding steps, ladders, biminis, awnings, dock posts, walkways and picnic tables or near dock lockers, utility boxes, BBQs and swim platforms. They can also be taken to shore for nights on the beach. The RailLight also makes a great emergency light or signal beacon if the boat loses power. If the light is dropped in the water, it will float.
 
Two models are available, the RailLight Premium and RailLight Mini. The Premium version has four LEDs with a high/low/off switch function, while the Mini has two LEDs with an on/off switch function.

RailLight Premium comes with a complete QuickMount system allowing it to be installed three different ways. The rail mount hardware can be used on any round railing from 7/8" to 1.25" in diameter. The surface mount can be installed vertically or horizontally, while the threaded nylon c-clamp can be clamped to any wooden rail, table, tender or chair arm up to 2" thick. The QuickMount system can be purchased separately for RailLight Mini, which only includes mounting hardware for round rails from 7/8" to 1.25" in diameter.

The Middens of Galiano Island

By Catherine Dook

We motored our way into Montague Harbour along a twisted channel with our engine muffled by the leaning trees.

“This is peaceful,” I told my husband, John.

“Look,” I pointed to an eagle sitting on the top of a tree overlooking the channel entrance like a sentinel giving permission for us to pass. Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.

Almost a decade ago, Cruisers Yachts Inc., launched an entire line of express cruisers called “Cantius” (named after company owner KC Stock’s grandfather) that began with the 48Cantius then came the 54, the 60 and now the Cantius 50. In the fall of 2017, we will be at the debut of the 42 Cantius at the Fort Lauderdale International boat show.

These designs have a strong family resemblance withhandsome and distinctive linesand with a design philosophy that you could say, pioneered the new version of the express cruiser.
