The Raymarine p70 Autopilot Control Heads are push-button operation controllers designed primarily for sailboats.
Raymarine's p70 Autopilot Controller keeps you in command of your SmartPilot autopilot system no matter whether you are cruising, fishing or sailing! Built on Raymarine's ultra-sleek platform, the p70R autopilot controller offer boaters an attractive, high-visibility, and simple to operate interface to their Raymarine SmartPilot X-Series autopilot systems.
The p70R features a 3.5" sunlight viewable Liquid Crystal Display. LED backlighting delivers superior visibility day or night and ultra-low power consumption. p70R also supports group dimming along with i70 Instruments and e7 multifunction displays. p70R's LightHouse user interface delivers simple setup, calibration and operation. The intuitive layout makes accessing all of the p70R's features easy.
The p70R offers a convenient rotary control knob and support for multiple autopilot modes including Auto, standby, trolling patterns, and track mode from your GPS or chartplotter. Exclusive to the p70R is a convenient Power Steer mode, which enables you to use the p70R's rotary knob like a miniature steering wheel. p70R brings convenient, compact steering control to wherever you need it like auxiliary steering stations, flybridges, wing control stations and more. p70R features standard SeaTalkng connectivity for simple interfacing with Raymarine SmartPilot X-Series autopilot corepacks.
p70R matches perfectly with i70 instruments and the new e7 series multifunction displays. p70R is designed with a clean, modern look that looks great on today's luxury sail and power vessels.

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.Read More
In sediment samples taken throughout the world’s oceans, researchers key on shell fragments from single-celled organisms to learn more about the history of an area’s chemistry. But surprisingly little is known about how these organisms form their shells in the first place. In a bid to alleviate some uncertainty, scientists at the University of Washington have imaged some of the actions that take place. As a starting point, the researchers have zeroed in specifically on the time period during which single-celled organisms first start to form their shells. The researchers caught juvenile foraminifera by diving in deep water off Southern California. They then raised them in the lab, using tiny pipettes to feed them brine shrimp during their weeklong lives.Read More
Earlier this year, we covered a work in progress to build a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for Yellowstone Lake . It was just an idea back then, but the exploratory craft has since become a reality thanks to some determined researchers and a Kickstarter campaign that reached a goal of $100,000 in funding. Full cost for building the vessel was around $500,000, but crowdfunding a portion of it allowed officials at the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE), a nonprofit engineering group, to spur public interest. In a similar vein, they named the completed ROV “Yogi” in honor of the famous fictional comic book character devised by Hanna-Barbera who gets into trouble at Yellowstone National Park.Read More
