Ewincher SailForce

Ewincher recently introduced their innovative SailForce winches, the next generation of electric winches that combine new motor technology with Australian made Hutton winches. Powered by a dedicated 30V lithium-ion battery, the winch is unique because it offers two speeds — fast and slow — with a super sensitive tension limiter that stops the winch when the limit has been reached. A wide range of tension limits can be configured to match the specificities of each boat. The winch only consumes 6 amps and, when it’s not in use, the battery pack is recharged from the boat’s 12V system. This eliminates the need to upgrade the capacity of your house battery bank. The battery pack can be placed anywhere on board by running a new cable or by connecting it to any 12V cable available. The SailForce electric winch comes with a 12V control panel and is available from size 40 to 70.

Exposure Marine RAW Pro 2 Headlamp

Whether you’re racing or cruising, having a reliable headlamp aboard for each crewmember is a must. Designed for the rigors of the ocean and tested by racers during The Ocean Race, Exposure Marine’s newly updated RAW Pro 2 Headlamp is a go-to for its additional output power and longer run times. The RAW Pro 2 now offers up to 265 lumens bright white light for outstanding visibility on deck, together with 50% more red light output of 75 lumens for better night visibility, without any glare. Pre-set to switch on in its lowest red light setting, the RAW Pro 2 prevents any risk of compromising your or your crew’s night vision. A simple, single click operation switches the RAW Pro 2 from red to white, and up to high white mode. USB recharging takes just 1.5 hours and with the new through-case magnetic charging option you simply connect the charger lead with a quick ‘snap on’ motion. Silicone strips inside the headband improve the holding performance, removing any need for an overhead strap and also helping to channel sweat towards the back of the head.
