Automatic Cover For Pontoon Boats
Covering and uncovering a pontoon boat is no longer a hassle. The Liberator from Jackson Canvas Company is an automatic, key-fob controlled mooring cover/cruising top combination. To help make this cover stand up even more to the great outdoors, it's constructed from Safety Components' WeatherMAX 80 fabric.
WeatherMax outperforms marine-grade polyesters and acrylics in strength and resistance to tears and abrasion.
The Liberator from Jackson Canvas Company enables owners to uncover or cover their boat in less than 45 seconds. It has four positions: mooring cover, bimini, double bimini (full shade), and bridge for a low overpass. More information on the Liberator can be found at www.jacksoncanvas.com.

Get Around With Stand-up E-Scooter
EcoReco's stand-up e-scooter is a self-propelled green solution for skippers to get around at the dock. At 34 pounds, the design takes little space (3 feet by 1 foot by 0.5 foot).
The user simply shoves off and pulls the accelerator lever. The lithium iron phosphate battery (36V, 8Ah) and brushless direct-drive hub motor get the rider (below 250 pounds for best performance) up to a range of 20 miles on a single charge at 13 mph cruising speed. Top speed is about 20 mph.
The charger brings the batteries to 85 percent capacity in about 2.5 hours via a regular 110-240V AC outlet.

Wireless Remote Control Steering
Whether fishing or cruising, boaters gain maximum enjoyment when they can relax. The Intellisteer wireless steering system from Canada Metal (Pacific) and Octopus Autopilot Drives puts the focus on ease with handheld remote steering control.
With the Intellisteer wireless pendant, users can manage their boat's course from anywhere onboard. The system eliminates the need for constantly running to the wheel for course adjustments or continually adjusting a kicker motor.
System components include a reverse polarity- and overload-protected receiver/motor. The water-resistant, wireless pendant is designed for ergonomic comfort and comes with a lanyard. An automatic shutoff helps preserve battery life.
Prices for Intellisteer wireless steering packages start at $299.
