Sea Library


This is a section of the Library list where we have culled many of the articles and reports we’ve published over the years due to technology or legislative changes - witness the virtual disappearance of HF radio systems, the marked downgrading of the ubiquitous 27Mhz radio transceiver, not to mention the disappearance of many popular brands of depth sounders and fish finders. We’ve concentrated on retaining the communication articles of interest to today’s boat owners, dealing instead with today’s ‘smart’ phones, GPS-based EPIRBs, sat-phone systems, VHF, combo electronic units, etc.
Rest assured we haven’t forgotten our popular depth sounder/fish finder reports - and as the electronics world seems to be settling down after the various mergers and take-overs, we’ll be starting these again, asap.
