Marina Jack Transforms the City and the Waterfront Marina Of the Year

The city-owned and privately operated marina in Sarasota, Florida, has been an iconic spot in the downtown area for nearly five decades, but originally the marina was more of an appendage to the largely successful waterfront restaurants. However, in the last 10 years, the city of Sarasota has become a premier boating destination on Florida’s West Coast, thanks to the work of Marina Jack to transform its image, infrastructure and the tourist community around it. Congratulations to Marina Jack, the 2015 Marina Dock Age magazine large Marina of the Year winner.

Texas Marina Rebuilds after Extensive Storm Damage

Located in a cove on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas, Lakeway Marina is generally sheltered from the worst of the elements. But on June 12, 2014, manager Jodi Allen watched in disbelief as 90 mileper-hour winds whipped straight through the marina for 45 minutes, shoving docks together, destroying walkways, ripping off dock roofs and snapping anchors and cables. It was a memorable birthday for Janet Caylor, the marina owner and Allen’s mother-in-law.

Lighting Package

Kasco Marine launched a stainless steel and composite LED lighting package for its fountains and aerators. The new stainless steel lights feature increased brightness, rated at 1,700 lumens per fixture. The company said the lights are three times brighter than Kasco’s composite option with low power consumption. These lights are available in multiple power cord lengths up to 500 feet. The lights have a corrosion-resistant housing and cap, a polycarbonate lens, and fixtures designed to minimize water entry points and are certified to both UL and CSA standards. The composite LED lights are 35 percent brighter and provide illumination to any ½-7.5HP Kasco fountain or aerator.

Freshwater Bottom Paint

Sea Hawk introduced VMG Hard & Fast Racing Finish, a new bottom coat geared specifically for freshwater vessels. Enhanced with PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene), VMG Hard & Fast Racing Finish exhibits one of the lowest coefficients of friction while its copper-free formulation ensures colors stay vivid and true over time. Compatibility with older freshwater bottom coatings enables the application VMG directly over Interlux VC17 and Pettit SR-21 without having to strip hulls. The hull coating reduces drag to maximize vessel velocity and provides a layer of protection. Packaged in quarts with an alloy powder additive, Sea Hawk said VMG goes on easily and dries quickly.

Marine Forklift

Marine Travelift Inc. introduced its new M2000 marine forklift, featuring hydrostatic drive, which enables the operator to have precise and variable control in forward and reverse. The forward-reverse drive selection and speed control is located at the operator’s foot.

The M2000 is available with an upgraded wireless remote for the mast control along with an impressive array of standard features and options, all of which include the latest in marine forklift technology. Marine Travelift also offers larger capacity marine forklifts, which are currently in operation at facilities around the country.
