Don’t toil with this Hyrofoil
The high performance of a hydrofoil doesn’t necessarily have to come at a high price. Helping create safer, more enjoyable times on the water, Davis Instruments offers its popular yet economical Doel-Fin stabiliser.
It maximises lift without creating excessive drag, helping boats plane quickly. The efficient design can reduce fuel consumption by up to 30%. The Doel-fin boasts a unique two-piece design and a true foil shape. Each high-strength plastic fin flexes independently to enhance stability and discourage propeller cavitation. It works on all outboards and outdrives with a cavitation plate and can be installed in as little as 15 minutes. Boat owners can experience better visibility and safety as the Doel-fin decreases stern suction and bow rise. It also steadies the boat during turns and improves control, especially in rough water.

Ship-to-shore power devices are always stuck out in the elements, subjected to heat, cold, rain, snow or corrosive salt spray. Hubbel Marine offers a high-quality line of 100 amp pin and sleeve plugs, connector bodies and components designed to withstand damaging marine conditions. Hubbel Marine’s shore power inlets use a spring-loaded, gasketed cover that automatically closes when not in use, creating a waterproof seal. Locking the cover makes it watertight, and inside the nickel-plated, solid brass pins, ensure reliable electrical contact.
The 100 amp devices come in 125/250, 120/208 and 277/480 volt versions. Inlet and receptacles boxes, closure caps and replacement parts are also available…
