New Tank Monitoring System Uses App or MFD

TankAssure monitoring system from Raritan

Sept 28, 2023

Finicky, inaccurate internal mechanical float sensors on water and holding tanks driving you nuts? The new TankAssure monitoring system from Raritan changes this.

Ideal for OEM and refit, the sealed and submersible plug-and-play sensor minimizes wiring complexity and simplifies the installation process. It provides precise readings via the Raritan TankAssure companion app or simple readings through the LED panel. With an optional adapter, the device will display data on an NMEA 2000 networked MFD. It debuts at IBEX in Tampa this weekend.

Made in the USA, the maintenance-free TankAssure has a durable, rust-proof stainless steel sensor housing for reliability and a long service life. It comes with a 25′ sensor cable. TankAssure works with black, grey and potable water tanks of any material up to 40″ H and isn’t affected by sludge or foam buildup, nor changes in conductivity or temperature. Should an obstruction interfere with a holding tank vent, BVD® (Blocked Vent Detection) technology alerts the user and helps in diagnosing the issue. The device runs on 10–27V DC.

Its LED monitor panel and companion mobile app enable easy setup and calibration of up to four full or empty tanks using only the height. Data displays in a choice of gauge or bar format. Users can assign names to tanks, set blocked, high and low alarm thresholds, and select a level update rate. Tanks not in use can be temporarily removed from the display. For added security, the app can be password-protected.

TankAssure comes with an LED monitor panel and one sensor and costs US$910; additional sensors) are US$540 each. The companion app for Android or iOS is free. The NMEA 2000 adapter is US$510.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
