Navigation and Charting
Mark 25 Sextant
Full-field dielectric Beam Converger with quartz hardcoat replaces conventional half-silvered mirror. Horizon and astrobody images are combined in a single full-field for easy, reliable sights under the most difficult conditions. • Special mineral coating is selective for different wavelengths of light. Horizon is transmitted in one color region and the star or sun in another. • Improved reinforced plastic stiffens frame for greater measurement accuracy. • High-efficiency LED (solid-state Light Emitting Diode) illumination system, which floods arc and drum with soft light. The LED will last for the lifetime of the sextant.* Batteries, which are included, will last up to 10 times longer than with regular bulbs. This is another Davis first! Positive “push-on” switching action, with vinyl boot water protection.
Simple, Accurate, Proven
Hand Bearing Compass
Using this precision marine hand bearing compass, you can easily obtain quick magnetic bearings on shore or floating objects. Simply align front and rear sights on an object and read off bearing. Uses include quick bearing or position set, determination of angular gain or loss on the competition while racing, checking distance offshore, establishing lee-bow set while cruising or racing in currents, drift vectoring and plotting a line of position. The stable, liquid-damped compass card is graduated in 5° segments, with bold graduations every 15° for easy reading. Solid-state LED illumination system floods the compass and sight vane with soft light. The LED will last for the lifetime of the compass. Instrument is lightweight, made of high impact plastic. Large, contoured handle designed for sure, steady grip and angled forward for added control. Positive “push-on” switching action, with vinyl boot water protection. Lanyard included. Battery housing has high watertight integrity. Batteries included. Complete instructions.
Docking and Maintenance
FSR Fiberglass Stain Remover
FSR is a unique stain absorbing gel that serves a variety of purposes both ashore and afloat. It's ideal for removing oil, rust, exhaust, waterline and transom stains, yet it can also be used anywhere else fiberglass stains may crop up—shower stalls, furniture, etc. Use for removing road soil from trailered boats and recreational vehicles. Its non-abrasive quality means that it's safe to use on white painted surfaces as well as on gel-coat. Requires no sanding or compounding. Simply apply with a brush, sponge or cloth. Wait a few minutes and then wipe off or rinse. USE ON SHOWERS AND SPAS, TOO.
Air-Dryr is a silent, inexpensive and effective way to combat moisture, cold drafts and corrosion. Designed to operate anywhere continuously 24 hours a day—just plug it into any 110/120 volt outlet and leave it on. It works best when placed low on the floor of any damp, enclosed space allowing Air-Dryr to draw in cool, moist air. The damp air is gently heated to the point where moisture is held in suspension (above the dew point), then released through the top vents of the device. As warm air rises, more damp air is drawn into the unit, where it too is heated. The resulting natural convection circulates the air and prevents moisture from settling. In a perfect situation, ventilation will remove the moisture laden air, replacing it with drier air
Shock Absorbing Solutions
Shockles are designed to absorb all shock loads at the dock, at anchor, on a mooring and on land. By absorbing shock loads, Shockles quiet anchor chain noise, and extend the life of dock lines and anchor lines by minimizing wear and chafe. When rigged properly, jarring from tidal surge and wind waves is eliminated increasing both comfort and safety aboard.
LineSnubbers feature our progressive tension design—the more they stretch the more tension it takes to stretch them. This minimizes the return force and dampens shock loads better than traditional rubber snubbers. LineSnubbers attach to the line by using a traditional clove hitch knot, or by using an optional Davis LineGrabber. The Davis LineSnubber is easily adjusted for varying conditions, and it can be readily be moved from line to line, unlike rubber snubbers where the line is woven into the snubber.
Davis Removable Chafe Guards fit braided or twisted line from 3/8 to 1" (10–25 mm). They're easy to remove and adjust as lines stretch or chafe protection is needed elsewhere. Great for dock, mooring and anchor lines where wearing through a line could cost you the boat. The outside cover is made of tough, UV-stabilized nylon webbing. The inside is lined with hook-and-loop fasteners to grip the rope.
