Sailing

And the not so serious laid back cruiser who's serious about their gear!!



Mauri Pro Sailing, your sailing store and direct access to sailing solutions. Check out their Garhauer Blocks. All blocks, as with every Garhauer part, come with 10 year unconditional guarantee. All of our blocks are Garhaurer except for the custom mast sheaves. We use the snatch blocks as spinnaker and staysail turning blocks, which is usually a no-no but not with these Snatch blocks. We also have the track cars and found they are significantly cheaper than others but still very high quality, maybe it's because they don't sponsor any racing campaigns. With SWL up to 5000 you can get them for almost any purpose, I know people who use them on their parachute anchor (or at least plan to). Use the load tables under the Read More section to help you make your selection. If you're confused about what your boat's load are or how to set it up, use the Harken Spec. Enter your boat type, select view loading report. Visit Mauri ProSailing to check out their other sailing gear, sailboat hardware and online sail loft.


NorCross Marine Products We use the HawkEye Portable Handheld Depth Finder to scope out uncharted anchorages. You can bring it in the dinghy with a hand held GPS and chart a pass into a lagoon, prior to bringing in the big boat, or you can snorkel around the anchorage to check the depths of any obstructions. They also have a "cool" Marine Infrared Thermometer for measuring surface temperatures remotely, just aim the laser at the surface you want to measure and you've got it. It's useful when attempting to diagnose engine circulation or cylinder problems. If you don't like the idea of the handheld depth sounder they make a perfect Micro Surface Mount Depth Sounder for the dinghy.


Danard Marine Products Dinghy Wheels through Danard Marine Products. They are amazing and have proven to be great work horses in places where others get left at the waters edge. Bring extra tubes, a patch kit and remove them from the dinghy at night or they may go missing.

Sea Breathe makes various 12 volt snorkeling options. We use the single diver deck unit, but I would upgrade to the two diver deck unit if I could. This would allow both of us to drift snorkel together after we cleaned the bottom. They have a new two diver to one diver mode, which allows one diver to use the two person unit and save 7 amps over the full two diver mode. It can also be used if two divers are in shallow water. We made a quick release connection in our forward locker that easily converts to battery clamps when we lend it out (which seems to be quite often). Hmm there you go, cover the costs by renting it!!

Best Marine Imports

 

Best Marine Imports.  Its a pretty self explanatory name, they import the best marine products from around the world.  If you haven't yet been able to find what you're looking for, they might have it. They have some great chain claws, anchor swivels and barbeques (no body does a barbie like the Aussies).
