Shore power loss
When you lose
shore power it can be
expensive. Batteries go
flat, electronics need
re-booting and food
spoilage can be messy.
On a marina it’s
not unusual to have a
240v power loss, maybe
someone unplugs your power cable and
forgets to plug it back in. Shore power loss is
a common problem.
BlueRay has the answer to notify you if
power is lost and if it’s re-connected. Simply
plug our monitor into a standard 240v outlet
that’s connected to shore power and activate
the installed SIM card.
It’s that easy and reliable for only $199 plus
delivery and you’re ready to go.

With only 12 chic and spacious cabins/
suites aboard Island Passage, the ambience is
intimate and sophisticated. Peter Bissett and
his Japanese wife were involved heavily with
the original design and conceived interiors
that channel a refined New Zealand spirit.
Six spacious cabins are on the main deck and
six suites have outdoor balconies where you
can lounge and watch the landscape pass by.
The 42m Island Passage is equipped with
unexpected amenities. Three tender boats,
kayaks, fish and snorkel gear plus a helicopter
pad that is used on each cruise for scenic
flights over the cruise area. An air y bar/lounge
is dotted with teak tables and chaises for
sunbathing and relaxing between off-ship
“ You feel like you are staying in a world-
class boutique hotel,” Peter Bissett explains,
“but in an ever changing setting you could
never see it that way.”

PRODUCT & INDUSTRY REVIEW
Smarter way to maintain your
boat’s gloss and UV protection
Southernwaters, a boat detail and
vessel management company with 15
years experience on the harbor, has joined
with a Canadian paint company to create
International Marine Coatings (Asia Pacific).
They have two systems for the coating
and protection of boats surfaces for ultimate
gloss and longevity.
Gelcoat – Due to the porous nature of
vinyl and polyester resin gelcoats, oxidation
happens in the first 1-2 years of exposure.
Chemical bonds breakdown resulting in
pigment release and colour fade.
Solution – IMC107 2-pack acrylic seals
the pores with UV inhibitors. Recoat – 9-12
Paint – Painted surfaces breakdown in
a similar way to Gelcoat but due to their 2
pack chemical bond often take 6 -7 years. At
this point resprays are expensive due to the
labour involved in prep and the expense
of boat sheds.
Solution – IMC 207 2-pack hand applied
urethane seals the pores. Recoat – two years.
