Joystick Steering For Single-Engines
Joystick Steering For Single-Engines
Mercury Marine’s new Joystick Steering for Single-Engine Vessels is compatible for use with the Verado family of V8, V10 and V12 outboard engines from 250 to 600hp. Enhanced by electric steering, the latest offering rounds out Mercury’s suite of joystick systems, delivering effortless command and control to owners of vessels powered by sterndrives, inboards, Zeus pod drives, multi-outboard installations, multi-outboards with an integrated bow thruster, single-engine pontoons with deployable thrusters, and now, boats with only a single outboard engine for propulsion.

Joystick Steering for Single-Engine Vessels eliminates the need for boaters to use both hands to throttle, shift and steer during low-speed maneuvers such as docking. Not only is one-handed operation more convenient, but the precision control that the steering system provides will give users greater confidence in situations where maneuvering a single outboard can be more challenging than a multi-engine configuration.

Dometic NRX S
Bring The Fridge
Why worry about coolers with melting ice when you can always have a sleek, compact fridge on board? The new compact refrigerator from Dometic is the perfect solution, and offers efficient cooling in all climate conditions. Using less power than a GPS chart plotter, this next generation refrigerator also provides three selectable cooling modes and gives boaters the flexibility to change cooling parameters based on the situation and environment. Available in six capacities, the Dometic NRX S is easily installed in new boats or retrofitted to your current pontoon. Designed for maximum energy efficiency, it uses up to 25 percent less electricity than comparable models currently in the market due to a new compact compressor design. (www.dometic.com)
Basking Bag from SeaSucker
Just Bag It

Trash blowing into the water is unacceptable, but is often the unintentional result of using a makeshift garbage bag. The new Basking Bag from SeaSucker is ideal for securing everything from trash to dirty laundry. It can be mounted in seconds wherever it’s needed — above or below deck or even outside on the hull because the innovative vacuum mount technology means it can hold up to 120 pounds indefinitely. That’s more than enough for a load of bottles or wet beach towels. The Basking Bag’s unique closure mechanism secures its contents no matter how choppy the water, but still opens easily with a convenient pull ring. Made from marine-grade UV-stabilized polymer with stainless steel hardware, the device is built for year-round outdoor exposure. (www.seasucker.com)

Space-Saving Hardware
When it comes to adding hardware, gunwales can fill up fast. The Cleat/Rod Holder Combo offered by Accon Marine combines the practicality of a pull-up cleat with a dedicated fishing rod holder in a small footprint. Plus, the almost-flush mounting won’t detract from the boat’s clean lines.
