Pier 66 Marina at Hyatt Regency is set to unveil the final phase of its $20 million renovation project just before the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show begins.

THE Old4New lifejacket van has contributed to the Clarence Valley being part of the best boating safety result NSW has seen in more than 20 years.

Which light is best for boaters? Hand-held spotlights are put to the test to find out.
How We Tested
To simulate reflective aids to navigation, we built 10 red-and-white reflective targets, 2 by 5 inches each. We positioned these 100 to 200 yards from our lights at 10-yard intervals. Every spotlight returned a reflection of all 10 markers. The more powerful lights had a brighter return, but we did not measure the difference in return brightness.
To test how well these spots would illuminate nonreflective objects, we used international orange targets — mini footballs — and arranged them at 10-yard intervals from 100 to 200 yards away. Then we lit them up and had two sharp-eyed teenagers count the visible targets.
To measure how wide the useful beam was, we set our targets out 50 yards away and spread them at five-yard intervals from left to right. We aimed the brightest point of the beam at the center target and counted how many reflective and nonreflective targets we could spot with the beam’s peripheral illumination. The widest width topped 80 yards.
Fishhooks come in myriad sizes, shapes and styles. Even individual features vary for the same hook. Let’s take a look at hook eyes.
As the first tropical storm of the season spun up off the coast, I decided to give the Vaavud Wind Meter a whirl. Finding and installing the app was quick and easy in iTunes as well as Google Play. With the wind meter plugged into my smartphone’s headphone jack and the app running I was able to get real-time information and compare it to other Vaavud users that logged results nearby. In addition to providing accurate data, the small form factor makes the wind meter easy to carry. All in all, the Vaavud Wind Meter is an easy-to-use tool for any boater checking the weather before hitting the water. vaavud.com, $50.00
