Stay Cool With New Webasto A/C Products

Webasto Air Conditioner

June 5, 2016

Now the climate on board can be a lot more comfortable with two new air conditioning products from Webasto.

FCF Platinum Self-Contained Air Conditioning Series

The new FCF Platinum Self-Contained Air Conditioning Series (shown left, above) is the latest development in Webasto‘s line of marine comfort solutions. FCF Platinum features an improved design, offering a higher BTU/h rating across a variety of ambient scenarios, while still providing unmatched product reliability and a two-year warranty.

Designed with a long and slim footprint ideal for retrofitting, FCF Platinum units feature a marine-grade stainless steel frame for durability and longevity, a standard digital display, controller and cable. A well balanced, proprietary compressor is quieter than ever before.

Available in 12,000 and 16,000 BTU/h models, 115V and 230V.

KoolAir “Run Dry”Coolant Pump

A clogged sea strainer can quickly ruin an otherwise perfect day on board if you’re left with a melted coolant pump and no A/C. The fully submersible KoolAir pump (shown right, above) is the only coolant pump offering run dry protection. Designed specifically to withstand higher temperatures when liquid is not flowing, the KoolAir pump will run several hours before shutting itself down – without damage. After that, reintroduce water, allow the pump to cool down and KoolAir will again operate normally. Pumps 500 gallons per hour. 115 and 230 volt models available.

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.
