JBL SpeakersPerhaps the ultimate audio solution for boat owners, the JBL by Harman BassPro Go from Prospec Electronics combines convenience, performance and portability in a single speaker. On the vessel, it's a subwoofer that delivers deep, powerful bass. When it's time to hit the beach, it disconnects and becomes a standalone streaming Bluetooth® speaker perfect for parties. It's so unique, it won a 2021 C.E.S. Innovation Award.

Onboard, the BassPro Go functions as a small box subwoofer. Offering 100Wrms, 200W peak power with a frequency response of 40Hz to 20kHz @ -3dB, it packs a serious punch. Integrated audio settings allow the device to be tuned for maximum performance.

The BassPro Go has a built-in NiMH battery that charges in its quick-disconnect mounting bracket. Once removed, Bluetooth automatically turns on and offers eight hours of playback at up to a 125' outdoor range.

With the JBL Connect mobile app for Android and iOS, it connects up to three devices for social mode music sharing. For an even more immersive experience, users can wirelessly link two BassPro Go speakers for simultaneous audio playback. A built-in 2.0 USB port can power a mobile device so the tunes don't end before the party does.

With all its fun and unique features, the BassPro Go from Prospec Electronics is still a premium audio component. It has a 5-1/2" activesubwoofer, two 2" speakers and two 5-1/2" passive radiator speakers deliversing audiophile-level sound definition, even at extreme volume levels.

Thoroughly tested, the JBL by Harman BassPro Go is built for rugged outdoor use. IPx5 rated for use in a marine environment, it resists water, chemicals, dirt and grime. It measures 15-7/8" L x 8-3/16" W x 7-13/16" H and weighs 11.6 lbs.

Beneteau Oceanis Yacht 54By Zuzana Prochazka

Beneteau saw an opportunity to add a little thrill to any cruising adventure, so they took the hull of the First 53 racer (introduced just last year), and with a few fashionable changes, created the Oceanis Yacht 54, the new entry-level of Beneteau’s swanky Oceanis Yacht line. The result is a performance cruiser that sails like a witch and looks like a grande dame.

Design

Roberto Biscontini is the naval architect and Lorenzo Argento created the details of the exterior and interior design.

The purchase of the L’Orignal Marina was made official in November 2020. The new year was barely underway when all 50 available slips were already reserved. No wonder the addition of member and visitor slips is already planned for the 2022 season – the 2021 count is up to 62 power and sail already. At the moment, the Riverest Marina offers boaters a stop where they can launch their boat...

Galvanic CorrosionIt’s a scary thought – but whether your boat is made of wood, fiberglass, aluminum or composite – it’s slowly deteriorating under you. Part of this is the nature of the marine environment: Sun, moisture, waves, wind, movement and vibration all contribute to components breaking down.

But there are other factors that are much more concerning and act at a significantly faster rate that the environment can take credit for. One of these is commonly spoken of, but not terribly well understood: Corrosion. As boaters, we’re concerned with two main types of corrosion: Galvanic and Stray-Current. This edition will focus on galvanic corrosion – in two weeks, stay tuned for info on stray-current.

One of our Canadian Yachting contributors, Denise Miller, had shared the article on my social media and a young man reached out and asked if she could connect him with the owners of the boat, Dave and Barb. Denise leapt into action and Dave and Barb were thrilled. They concocted a plan that the young lady, Mia, thought she was coming to model for a sales brochure for Dave to do charter tours.
