Clean And Protect Fabric With Complete Kit

Whether putting the boat or RV away for winter, or getting ready for the season down south, now is the perfect time to clean and protect outdoor fabrics. Iosso Products' Fabric Cleaner & Protectant Kit has everything owners need to care for a wide variety of materials.

The first kit component is Iosso Products' Mold & Mildew Stain Remover Cleaner. This amazing cleaner removes tough stains like algae, bird droppings, leaf tannins, dirt and grease. It doesn't contain bleach or chlorine, so it won't harm or discolor boat covers, awnings, tents and tarps, indoor and outdoor furniture cushions, carpeting or patio umbrellas.

The Fabric Cleaner & Protectant Kit also includes a 32 oz. bottle of Water Repellent concentrate that mixes up to 2 gallons. Used after cleaning, the concentrate is sprayed on fabric to repel water, soil and oils, and resist mildew and stains. It's not a solvent, nor does it contain silicone, so it dries completely invisible with no residue.

Like all Iosso products, the Fabric Cleaner & Protectant Kit is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. It doesn't have noxious odors and is easy on the skin.

Iosso Products' Fabric Cleaner & Protectant Kit treats 450 sq. ft. and costs $74.95.

High End Deck Hardware Meets Performance

Shakespeare announces a national promotion campaign for its flagship antenna line. Even in the most punishing weather conditions, Shakespeare® Phase III™ marine antennas deliver serious performance, outpacing the competition. Backed by an industry-leading eight-year warranty, the Phase III line of professional-grade VHF, AIS, HF/SSB and AM/FM models are ideal for commercial vessels, as well as offshore sportfish, coastal and bluewater yachts.

Rivaling the look and quality of the industry's finest stainless steel fishing and deck accessories, Phase III ferrules install easily with standard 1-inch, 14-thread mounts or U-bolts. Shakespeare's SO-239 connector eliminates coax rerouting and enables quick removal for storage or passing under low structures. The Phase III 12-sided faceting prevents shaft rotation and potential cable shearing.

Shakespeare's high-strength fiberglass radomes are unsurpassed in the industry. Phase III antennas have silver-plated elements for maximum electrical efficiency. Stranded tinned copper inner conductors deliver peak signal strength and an Ethafoam spacer system isolates the radiators from vibration and moisture for a long, reliable service life.

Three VHF antennas are offered in 4-foot, 8-foot and 18-foot lengths with 3dB, 6dB and 8dB gain, respectively. The 4-foot AIS model has a 3dB gain and the 18-foot HF/SSB handles 1kw output power. Two AM/FM units are available in 4-foot and 8-foot lengths. Prices for Shakespeare Phase III antennas start at $269.95.

Shockles Absorb Jarring Loads On Lines And Chains

Whether tied to a dock or mooring, at anchor or towing a dinghy, lines and chains create enormous stress on cleats, chocks, fairleads and related fittings, especially when suddenly jarred. Shockles™ from Davis Instruments is a patented line of simple, innovative devices that absorbs the damaging shock loads placed on a boat's hardware and cordage from wakes, chop, waves and tidal surges. They make for a safer, more comfortable boating experience.

Shockles are built to last. They're made from UV-resistant nylon webbing that's stitched over an internal line limiter and elastomer system. This is what creates the unique progressive tensioning that smooths and tempers jarring and snapping. Marine grade 316 stainless steel hardware is used for durability and superior strength.

Available in black or blue, Shockles LineSnubber™ fits lines from .325-inch to .75-inch in diameter. 20-inch long at rest, it attaches to the line with its pair of 3.875-inch captive carabiners and stretches from 4-inch to 8-inch to gradually absorb loading. Anchor-Snubber, designed for chain, has two 3.125-inch key pin halyard shackles.

A bungee cord on steroids,

MiniShockles™ feature a pair of wire gate snaps and are designed for lighter loads up to 300 lbs. They're offered in three lengths, 12-inch, 18-inch and 24-inch.

Davis Instruments' Shockles LineSnubber and AnchorSnubber cost $59.99; 12-inch, 18-inch and 24-inch MiniShockles cost $13.99, $14.99 and $15.99, respectively.
