Keep an Eye on Things with Gost™ “Mini Ball” Cameras

GOST™ (Global Ocean Security Technologies – formerly Paradox Marine) has introduced several new models of its GOST Mini Ball Camera. The camera is now available in PAL, reverse image (NTSC and PAL) and also in wide angle with a 2.8 mm lens for enhanced security and surveillance on board.

Measuring only 2.4 inches (61mm) in diameter, this rugged, marine grade, water – resistant and tamper proof analogue camera – just slightly larger then a golf ball – can be mounted discreetly inside or out – and it won’t detract from a boat or yacht’s decor or ambience. The GOST Mini Ball is now the company's primary camera and will be included in all GOST Watch HD & GOST Insight HD packages.

"This has allowed us to reduce the cost of our cameras while expanding the line and pass significant savings along to our customers," said GOST President and CEO Jay Keenan. The standard model features a 3.6 mm fixed lens for outstanding picture quality and all versions incorporate 540 TV lines in colour for high resolution. A Day/Night function automatically senses light changes and switches the camera mode from colour in bright light to monochrome at night or in low light conditions, using state-of-the-art LED technology.

You can even mount a couple of these in your engine room to monitor that while underway!

The latest data shows pontoon boats now represent around 30% of all new boats sold in Canada and it’s easy to understand why – with their interior space and tremendous versatility, pontoons are near-perfect family runabouts.

Cruising Georgian Bay’s 30,000 Islands: Canada’s Freshwater Paradise for Boaters

By Elizabeth Wilson, “Georgian Bay Beauties” (www.GeorgianBayBeauties.org)

The Plan

It’s a beautiful morning as we perform our pre-departure checklist, fire up the engines and prepare to release our lines. And if the long-range forecast of very low winds coupled with plenty of sunshine holds, that’s exactly what we need for the areas we plan to explore on this trip! 

We are departing Midland for a week of visiting some of the islands and anchorages within Georgian Bay’s “30,000 Islands” – specifically those along the western edge. These are the less protected islands which face toward wide-open Georgian Bay, where boaters often have to depart the small craft route and work a little harder at setting the hook but are then rewarded with magnificent western views, stunning sunsets, and so much to explore!
