Media Receiver Lets The Music Flow

With the Milennia PRV20 from Prospec Electronics, there’s no reason not to take a portable media device for a day out on the water. This portable media receiver is Bluetooth capable, letting boaters stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled device.

Once the device is paired to the PRV20, users can control the music selection and volume through the stereo receiver or through the portable media device.

The MILPRV20 has a strong internal amplifier of 45W by 4 and contains an aluminum heat sink for efficient heat dissipation. It also features AM/FM radio, USB and auxiliary inputs. The compact unit measures 5-1/4 inches long by 3-1/4 inches wide by 1-3/4 inches deep.

The PRV20 retails for $169.95.

Underwater Lights For Small Craft

Smaller boats, RIBs and PWCs can be just as bright as mega-yachts. Aqualuma Marine Lighting’s 1 Series delivers illumination ideally suited for light craft up to 28 feet. The 1 Series is built from a high-impact polymer material.

The 1 Series draws less than .3 of an amp and requires a 12V or 24V DC power source. Featuring a wide angle, elliptical beam measuring 12° by 50°, its high-output LED is designed to last.

Easy to install, the internally driven underwater light is fully serviceable and upgradeable without the need for haulout. The two-wire installation doesn’t require any bonding to anodes. It features reverse-polarity protection, ignition protection, low heat emission and a housing that cannot corrode.

Waste Treatment Keeps Waters Cleaner

Owners of boats up to 65 feet can rely on the ElectroScan from Raritan U.S. Coast Guard-certified Type 1 marine sanitation device (MSD) for use in coastal waters which have not been designated “no discharge” by the U.S. EPA.

The waste treatment process occurs in three phases. First, salt water and untreated waste enters the unit and solids are reduced to minute particles.

Then, electric current is applied to electrodes, which convert the salt water to a powerful bactericide and oxidizing agent, hypochlorus acid. The next time the treatment unit is activated, the treated waste crosses over into the mixing chamber. Waste is treated a second time resulting in sanitized waste and salt water.

Finally, treated waste is discharged and salt water is returned to receiving waters.

Wiper Arms That Perform Better

Windshield wiper arms may not be the flashiest component of a boat, but they need to hold up over time. Recent upgrades to heavy-duty, adjustable tip wiper arms from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine Products make them perform and look better, all without a price increase.

Adjustable tips on the Deluxe Ultra HD single and parallel wiper arms swivel with the wiper blade to better clear water from the windshield. They’re now made from marine-grade 304 stainless steel, as are all structural pieces on these models, for durability and good looks.

Suggested retail prices start at $58 for single arms with adjustable tips and $68 for parallel models.
