Keep your diesel clean, check out a new chart plotter from Simrad, and know your boat’s speed with an updated SpeedPuck in the latest Products News.

» Velocitek SpeedPuck
Velocitek’s updated SpeedPuck is a simple GPS speedometer created for sailing, but can be used in any situation where you want to easily see your speed. The newest version of the puck includes a high-contrast LCD screen for enhanced brightness and readability, and extended battery life that is USB rechargeable. If your boat is under 40-feet, you’ll be able to mount the SpeedPuck on your mast and read it easily from anywhere in the cockpit, even if you don’t have perfect vision. The SpeedPuck is a completely self-contained unit that can be installed in seconds without tools. Instead of using a paddle wheel, the SpeedPuck calculates your speed by measuring the Doppler shift in GPS signals to provide you with an updated reading four times a second. The SpeedPuck never needs to be calibrated and maintains uniform accuracy at all speeds. If you wander into adverse current or your crew starts slacking, the SpeedPuck will tell you!

» Desl-Shok Fuel Additive
As we learned from 48° North “Diesel Deep Dive” columnist Meredith Anderson in the April 2022 issue, clean diesel fuel is imperative to the smooth operation of our engines. But, ultra-low-sulfur diesel, while cleaner burning than previous fuels, offers less lubricity and can increase the likelihood of water contamination up to 10%. Desl-Shok™, from USA Fuel Service, is designed to remove water, eliminate condensation, and dissolve sludge in your boat’s fuel tank. The broad-spectrum formula cleans injectors, carburetors, and fuel lines to promote a cleaner burn that, in turn, reduces carbon build-up in the motor and exhaust. It also decreases smoke and engine noise; and is an easy way to increase fuel economy, extend component service life, and reduce hard starting and engine downtime. Regular use of Desl-Shok stabilizes and boosts cetane levels and acts as a lubricant throughout the fuel system. The formula contains no acids or alcohol, so it won’t harm gaskets, hoses, seals, and other components.
