New HydroHoist PWC Dock
The HP Extreme® PWC docking platform is the newest product from HydroHoist Marine Group with a number of improvements over older generation PWC ports.
"The HP Extreme is the easiest load and launch of any PWC docking platform on the market, with features unmatched by any in the boatlift industry," said HydroHoist CEO Mick Webber. "Customers say it's the easiest drive-on port, truly eliminating the initial "bump" that often occurs when driving onto a PWC dock. The added bow stop makes it easier to stop at the right point."
HydroHoist worked with Perisco Group, a worldwide leader in engineering mold designs, to develop this new platform made from polystyrene (EPS) marine foam for increased strength and leak elimination. The new port incorporates a flat, anti-skid walking surface, and an exclusive "air-pillow" bow stop.
While docking, PWCs are fully roller-supported, utilizing high performance 5" x 2" rollers, which are easily adjusted for width and placement to accommodate different hull configurations. Other user-friendly enhancements include stainless steel roller axels for increased strength and durability in fresh, brackish, and salt water, providing care-free, long-life application in virtually every water condition.
The HP Extreme is one of several new products introduced by HydroHoist this year, including a new two-valve boatlift control unit, and a boatlift designed specifically for saltwater applications. Retail price for the new HP Extreme is $1,995.00, including dock attachment / mooring kit. For more information visit www.boatlift.com

Waterproof 'Talkabout'® Two-Way Radios
The new Motorola 'Talkabout'® T600 H20 handheld UHF two-way radio offers a durable and effective alternative to VHF marine-band communication for boaters and outdoor enthusiasts. While not intended to replace critical VHF communication between vessels and emergency services, the T600 H20 radios are ideal for private communications between crew members, shore parties, and others not wishing to broadcast over the more restricted marine-band channels.
With twenty-two channels and 121 privacy codes, the T600 'Talkabout'® radios make it easy to find an available channel, and they are compatible with other radios broadcasting over UHF FRS/GMRS 462-467 MHz frequencies.
Engineered to IP67 waterproof standards, the lightweight hand-held units float face up with a built-in, water-activated flashlight making them easy to find in difficult conditions. The flashlight provides both white and red LED light settings, allowing users to preserve night vision or light the way in the dark.
The durable and eco-smart radios come with NiMH rechargeable batteries providing up to nine hours of use, and a 3-way charging adaptor. With a range of six miles over level terrain the hands-free activation and speakerphone feature allows users to keep moving without stopping to answer a call. The radios can also be tuned into one of eleven weather channels, including seven NOAA channels, and will initiate emergency weather alerts in NOAA radio service areas.
The Motorola 'Talkabout'® T600 H20 handheld UHF two-way radios retail for $119.99 each. For more information and ordering visit www.motorolasolutions.com/talkabout
