H Vector Navtex Antenna
Conventional navtex antennas respond to the electrical component associated with the navtex radio signal. They usually perform well at sea where electrical interference is low but can sometimes be overwhelmed with interference especially when in harbour and connected to shore power.
In most small craft the electrical system acts as an effective ground for the antenna but it can also be a source of interference conducted from other electrical equipment on board. Electrical interference can result in poor reception especially in a marina where the ambient level is high or at sea when poorly suppressed electrical equipment is in use.
The omnidirectional H-Vector antenna is not sensitive to electric fields but to the magnetic component of the navtex signal. As a result it is less sensitive to locally generated interference and, as it does not need a ground, it is not affected by conducted ground interference whether in harbour or at sea.
The net result is that, under adverse conditions, the H-Vector antenna can deliver a significant improvement to navtex reception. The mushroom shaped antenna is compatible with the Clipper navtex, series 2 Target navtex and with the navtex engine. It can be mounted on a cabin roof or rail mounted using an appropriate threaded antenna base.
I am delighted with our new antenna. Our Navtex , normally somnolent in the marina, has burst into life!
Someone asked me recently – why bother with Navtex? My answer was simple. Last year a gale blew up suddenly on the Turkish Aegean coast. The Navtex transmitter at Izmir issued an urgent gale warning out of ‘normal hours’ and it was the only service to do so! For example there was nothing about this gale on PredictWind on our WiFi.
Now had a full month on the boat in Turkey cruising around and am even more delighted than ever with the new antenna!

Clipper Depth System
Best selling Depth sounder with giant 40mm high digits for easy viewing. The outstanding Clipper range of instruments incorporate technically advanced electronics in an industry standard 110mm square case. Supplied complete with in hull depth transducer with 7 metre cable.
Clipper Wind System V2
The Clipper Wind system shares the same 110mm square case as its sister instruments in the Clipper range. the display is exceptionally large and clear, with 60 segments for full 360 degree direction indication. Windspeed is shown in knots, M.P.H. or Metres/second. The pointer style is selectable, from the single segment shown above, to multi segments for greater clarity or a ‘windex’ style indicator. The new masthead unit has NMEA 0183 output sentence MWV and supplied with 20 metres of cable.
Clipper Wind system is supplied complete with Display unit, masthead unit with cable and mounting blocks.
Clipper Electromagnetic Speed Log
The new Clipper electromagnetic speed log measures the boat speed through the water with no moving parts.
Robust and accurate, the sensor generates an alternating magnetic field below the boat and measures the resulting electric field produced by the boat moving through the water. It is designed for installation into most types of GRP hulls.
With excellent linearity and a resolution of 0.1 Knot, over the range 0.2 to 40 Knots, the log sensor sends signals to a control box which then converts the sensor signal to boat speed, trip and total distance. This data is transmitted in NMEA 0183 format to a new Clipper EM Log display unit.

Clipper Tactical Wind System
A high performance instrument system that shows almost instantaneous changes of wind speed and direction.
In demanding conditions, where high performance is essential, the Clipper Tactical wind system is the ideal choice. With ten updates every second it responds very quickly to the changes in wind speed and direction, which occur during tricky manoeuvres. The sensor is supplied complete with a mast mounting kit, 20 metres of light weight cable and all necessary electrical connectors to complete the installation. The output data is in the NMEA 0183 format and can be used to drive any compatible display that utilises the MWV sentence.
AIS Engine 3 upgrade processor
The AIS Engine 1 and 2 can be upgraded to AIS Engine 3 specification by replacing the processor. This is a straightforward procedure where the old device is simply unplugged from its socket and replaced by the new device. AIS Engine 3 relays all AIS messages.
