Details

Moulded parts are from high grade plastics which are strong, light and impact-resistant. Cams and bases are from marine grade aluminium, 'Spectro' anodised for high wear resistance and long life.

The true clutch mechanism allows line to be adjusted through the unit in the closed, locked position with minimal slippage. The mechanism's opening and closing action is precise and easy to operate, even with cold wet hands. A positive handle lock in the closed position is also featured.

A unique feature of this design is the removable insert on the top face of the handle. Pop this out and you can easily replace with printed coloured inserts to denote at a glance the function of the unit (i.e main, genoa, spinnaker etc).

The clutch's cam and base, manufactured from high grade extruded aluminium, features a specially tempered tooth design which allows for maximum grip with minimal slippage, whilst being kind to your lines. Stainless steel rope fairleads are fitted to both line entry and exit points, this feature prevents wear to both clutch and lines.

The Barton Marine clutch features the advantage of a bolt together construction which allows for ease of servicing and replacement of parts.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
