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.

KillarneyStory and Photos by: Jennifer Harker

We’re aboard Attigouatan, a Pursuit 2260 that normally lives life as a friend’s cottage boat, running back and forth from dock to dock. This will be her longest run in four years, travelling the approximately 120 kilometres (80 miles) northwest from Parry Sound to Killarney, threading our way through the northern reaches of the stunning 30,000 Islands of Georgian Bay’s eastern shoreline.

Her name evokes an early indigenous name for Lake Huron – Spirit Lake.

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440

Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 440By Zuzana Prochazka

There are few things more satisfying than watching someone thumb their nose at tradition and introduce something revolutionary that kicks convention to the curb. French designer, Philippe Briand, has done just that for Jenneau’s new line of Sun Odyssey family cruisers. By starting with a clean sheet, Briand re-thought how we move about on deck and below, and the results on the Jeanneau 440 are game changing.

Jeanneau unveiled the first hull of their 440 in Annapolis with dramatic flair. On command, the plastic that sheathed half the boat...
