  • Mineral Oil vs Synthetic Oil

    Mineral Oil vs Synthetic Oil

    By Jim Self Marine Engine Oil is one of the most controversial topics with marine mechanics and boat owners today. It can be especially contentious when it comes to OEM vs. aftermarket products and about the manufacturer's requirements. These are confusing topics for many boat owners and particularly in the marine industry, there's a lot of rhetoric. This is primarily because some oil manufacturers and marketers have made a lot of inaccurate and self-serving claims. Most of this rhetoric is fairly opinionated to get you to remain loyal to a particular brand and in some cases insinuate that you may be risking your warranty coverage if you depart from an OEM branded product. As far as warranty coverage, you are protected by the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act. As long as you use an oil that meets the specifications laid out by the particular engine manufacturer you can rest assured you are not risking coverage. In the marine industry the National Marine Man...

  • Power Inverters

    Power Inverters

    Inverter generators are perfect for boating, camping, RV travels, tailgating or other backup power needs. With these easy-to-transport portable generators, you can enjoy your electronics or small appliances with a quieter power solution compared to traditional camping generators. Inverter generators are a recent development and utilize a different type of alternator than standard generators to generate AC power. These are generally 3-phase generators that output AC current like most traditional generators, but that current is then converted to DC, and then "inverted" back to clean AC power. The raw power produced is converted from DC to AC power by a computer controlled inverter module. The inverter also smoothes and cleans the power to make it high quality. A special microprocessor controls the entire process, as well as the speed of the engine. The engine speed varies depending on the electrical demand, which significantly reduces noise and fuel consumption compared to a standard portable. Smooth Backup Power that's safe for sensitive electronics. With the DC power being inverted back into clean AC power at the desired frequency and voltage, the system products consistent and reliable power independent of the engine speed. The result is clean power that is essentially the same quality you get from the electric company. Clean enough power to run even the most sensitive electronic equipment. ...

  • From Drawing board to TV Commercial - New Minn Kota Trolling Motor

    From Drawing board to TV Commercial - New Minn Kota Trolling Motor

    By Minn Kota You've seen the commercial. A guy backs his boat up into the lake, launching it solo from his truck. As the boat begins to slide off the trailer into the water, he casually leans out the driver's side door and presses a button on a hand-held remote. As the boat continues to drift out, the trolling motor deploys itself and then holds his boat in place as he pulls away to park. That is the Minn Kota Ulterra with Auto Stow and Deploy and Power Trim offer truly hands-free operation from start to finish, from anywhere on (or off!) your boat. And now it's available in the corrosive-resistant strength and durability of Minn Kota's Riptide saltwater line.

    Choosing Replacement Exhaust Components

    By Quality Mark Inc. The beginning of the boating season-the time of year that brings a mix of joy and apprehension for boat owners. All of us are the same, you cross your fingers when uncovering your boat hoping that all your efforts during the winterization process paid dividends. If you are fortunate, you are able to do some light cleaning and general maintenance and off to the lake. If you are unfortunate, you can be in for some time, energy and money to get your boat in tip top shape. While the task can seem daunting, careful examination and inspection of your watercraft at the beginning of the year can result in a long and enjoyable boating season.
