New bio-bacterial toilet
Just about all
holding tank additives
do nothing except mask
smells and are not safe
to be put into a septic
tank or flushed into our
Now there is a new,
natural, holding and
flush tank additive, with
no added perfumes,
that is totally neutral
and can be safely used in all cassette toilets
and holding tanks.
New Green2gotm Holding & Flush Tank
Concentrate contains special safe cultures
of beneficial bacteria that digest and liquefy
holding tank contents and eliminate odours. It
keeps on working as long as water is present,
so it doesn't need to be re-applied every 3-4
days! One dose lasts until the tank is emptied.
Totally safe for the environment and for
the user. Just half a capful in the base tank and
the same in the flush tank, will ensure there is
no smell and that the tank contents are broken
down into a neutralized slurry, which is safe to
empty into any system, including septic and
composting toilet systems.

and be Heard!

releasing the IC-M73EURO --
a handheld marine VHF radio
to strict quality standards,
but also features an active
noise cancelling function,
which reduces background
noise by up to 90 percent,
allowing transmissions to be
When out in the ocean,
engine noise, howling wind
and crashing waves can
make radio communication
difficult, as all these elements
are transmitted along with
your voice. In an emergency situation, for
example, this is not ideal as you need clear
communications with rescue personnel, so
you can be returned to shore safely.
Icom's active noise cancelling technology
can differentiate voice from background noise in
both transmitted and received signals through
a Digital Signal Processor (DSP), allowing you
to hear and be heard at all times.

The classic style sailing boats are built

and timber fit-outs are hand crafted by Peter
Kerr and his team at Deagon Slipways.
