GOSTThe GOST® (Global Ocean Security Technologies) Nav-Tracker line of GPS tracking systems utilitzes the Inmarsat Satellite Constellation for all communication and control, providing complete global coverage everywhere in the world except the extreme poles.

Nav-Tracker systems report to the GOST Nav-Tracker website where customers can   add up to 10 recipients to receive emails/text messages from the system, as well as remotely arm and disarm a 500-meter geofence around the vessel. If the boat moves outside of the geofence when armed, the system will send geofence breach messages with the speed, heading, and location of the vessel to designated recipients. Different GOST Nav-Tracker systems are available to meet the needs of boat owners, such as the GOST Nav-Tracker 1.0 Insurance package which provides tracking only and includes a push button to locally arm and disarm the geofence.  

Originally designed for center consoles, the GOST NT-Evolution 2.0 features remote security and monitoring, as well as tracking. The GOST NT-Evolution 2.0 is also capable of up to five wireless relays to control any AC/DC function on board. One of these relays can even be utilized with Lumishore Ltd. Underwater LED lights to pulse when the GOST system goes into alarm, increasing visibilty of a stolen boat at night. Customers who purchase a Nav-Tracker 1.0 basic tracking system can upgrade at any time to another GOST Nav-Tracker system, utilizing the same Nav-Tracker antenna. Additional GOST Nav-Tracker systems can be found on the GOST website.


Wireless Security & Monitoring System

The GOST Phantom can support up to 64 wireless sensors for security and monitoring and 8 wireless relays to control any AC/DC functions on board your vessel. Monitor high water in the bilge, low voltage, loss of shore power, temperatures in bait & food freezers, smoke, intrusion and much more. Sophisticated, marinized deck pressure sensors, door contacts, dual optical passive infrared motion sensors and pull sensors alert you to intrusion or potential theft on your vessel. “Prevent the event” by programming a siren and flashing lights to go off when a sensor is triggered and deter thieves immediately. When an event occurs, the GOST Phantom will call/text up to 8 phone numbers with a voice recording or text message letting you know the vessel’s status and the event that has occurred. GOST Phantom and GOST Insight HD packages are available which include recommended  security and monitoring sensors, GPS tracking, and/or remote video surveillance.


Global Remote Video Surveillance System

The GOST Watch HD 3G packages include everything needed to remotely monitor all activities onboard the vessel,  anywhere in the world over the internet. Watch live video of the yacht as it leaves the harbor or view activities in the salon, staterooms or engine room from any PC or smartphone with internet access. Cameras can be set to record and send video clips via email or text message when motion is detected. The system can accommodate up to 6  cameras per login. The GOST Watch HD app is available to download for free on Apple and Android devices.


GOST Watch HD VIP Series packages are also available which provide high definition surveillance using a high speed internet connection through the KVH line of mini-VSAT Broadband? systems, along with a penta-band GSM/CDMA cellular data communicator for use when in cellular coverage areas. Vessels equipped with the GOST Watch HD video surveillance system and FLIR M-Series thermal night vision cameras can also have access to website based remote PTZ control of FLIR cameras on board and can view live streaming video of onboard cameras from anywhere in the world. The easy-to-use, web-based pan, tilt, zoom and mode control interface on the GOST Watch HD website works  

like the control puck on board, with a few modifications that enhance the capabilities for remote surveillance.  

The most noteworthy of these modifications is a one touch “Surveillance Scan” button that instantly performs a peripheral sweep of the area immediately surrounding the vessel.

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.
