GM35 and GM51 New Deck Freezers
You asked for it - A highly efficient and shorter deck
freezers. They feature 3" insulation, smooth interior wall, wide range
thermostat for refrigerator or freezer operation and only 39" and 59" long.

Smaller - Lighter - Sealed - Marine Deep Cycle Batteries.
If you have limited space and weight is a problem for adding more battery
capacity, these batteries may have the
configuration that would allow you to achieve your upgrade plan.
Imagine 420 ah in the same space as 1 - 200 ah 8D battery. These batteries can be installed on their sides or ends to maximize the
available space. (not inverted)

- Isolation Transformers
- Charles Industries has just introduced 2
new Marine Isolation Transformers. The new models have all of the
protection features of their other Marine Isolation Transformers. Lower prices
have been a result of a less expensive powder coated steel case instead of
aluminum and a less expensive method of making the electrical connections.
These models are priced at almost 50% less than their other models with the
same electrical capacity, which are still available.
Compact and efficient can be used as a counter top unit or built

Marine Quality tinned electrical wire. This manufacturer
produces a super flexible tinned Marine Quality electrical wire at a very low
competitive price. Because we purchase directly from the manufacturer our prices can be as
much as 40 to 50% less than some other brands with similar specifications.
- cubic foot Nova Kool refrigerator
9000 Now Available - this new model has the largest capacity of any unit
designed to fit into the most common opening for upright 2 door
refrigerators. 6.6 cubic feet in the refrigerator section and a generous 2.5
cubic foot refrigerator.
Frigoboat has incorporated a "Smart"
automatic speed control into all of their refrigeration systems. Coupled with
the new Danfoss BD50F compressor and state of art electronic controls, along
with other features, there are no comparable brands available for the
- Electro Guard
has introduced a new impressed
current corrosion protection system for larger boats. With this automatic
system you do not require any zinc anodes. The system is fully automatic and
has indicators to let you know the status and operation of the system.
Side Refrigerator/Freezer from Nova Kool
This new model has an
increased volume of 6.4 total cubic feet with a 4.3 cubic foot refrigerator
and a 2.1 cubic foot freezer.
Hydrocaps for batteries with 1/4 turn
caps are now available. Hydrocaps reduce the schedule for adding water to the
battery to about once a year. A Hydrocap is a catalytic gas recombiner than
converts hydrogen and oxygen gasses into pure water. The Hydrocap is only 2"
tall so in most installations height should not be a problem.
battery cap/safety-vent with flip top for filling. This battery cap fits in
place of a 1/4 turn cap. The escaping gasses flow through a moisture return
medium during the charging cycle and reduces electrolyte loss and the need to
water the battery as often. The cap is only 1" tall and has a flip up top to
make it a lot easier to top off the cells.
Electrical components including sine wave inverters, Inverter/chargers,
battery chargers, electrical panels, meters, electrical system monitors,
circuit breakers, galvanic isolators and other quality
marine electrical system installation components.
released 2 new heater models with an all new design. They are called Airtronic and are available as the Hot Air models - Airtronic 2 at 7,500
btu's (1800 watts) output and the Airtronic 4 at 13,650 btu's (4000
watts). The new Airtronic units feature multi level output, lower current draw, more
efficient burning, they are smaller, have fewer parts, easier to service and are more intelligent. For a more
detailed description of these heaters just
- Check out the high efficiency
refrigeration conversion systems from Frigoboat. These Danfoss powered
units are using a "keel cooler" to condense the refrigerant
instead of a fan. Frigoboat water cooled systems are up to 20% more
efficient than comparable air cooled systems. Many options allow you to
customize a system for your application. Competitively priced. Just
introduced is a larger capacity system. (see below
- Check out the spacious RS7500 under the counter, side x side refrigerator and
freezer. This model has 7.5 cubic feet of storage space, interior light and
with the Danfoss Compressor system it is silent.
Another new model is the
RF45704. This unit is 4.3 cubic feet and
is a single door under the counter with a Ice Cube / Freezer compartment. This model will
slip right into the opening of the older Norcold models DE704 and has an additional .5
cubic foot of space.
Frigomatic refrigeration conversion systems
recently introduced a new type of water cooling for maximizing the efficiency over the
more well known water cooling requiring a water pump. The water cooling is accomplished by
routing the refrigerant outside the boat and through a sea water resistant tube which
transfers the heat into the external water. The water cooling assembly is called a
"Keel Cooler". ( I guess because it is located somewhat near the keel.) The
external dimensions are about 7" long, 3" wide and 1" thick.
The "Keel Cooler" in built into a grounding plate for
electronics, similar to a Dyna-plate.
The current draw at normal cycling temperatures is under 5 amps. A normal air cooled or
pump operated water cooled system would draw up to 1 amp more than the keel cooled.
Plus the problems associated with water pumps are eliminated.
- For the boat with an aluminum out drive
there is a new impressed current corrosion protection system from Electro
Guard. This system has been under
development and testing for the last 3 years and is now available. Imagine no
more zinc's to replace and this system will tell you if it is working properly
or if there is a problem. Simple installation.
- For the ultimate protection against stray
current corrosion that is made possible when plugged into shore power, Charles Industries has introduced the first production
"Marine Isolation Transformers". They are smaller and less costly than any that
are true "Marine" isolation transformers which meet the USCG and ABYC
