Details

An easy-to-read 3-1/8" diameter analog faceplate displays, in high resolution, the rudder position from zero through fifty degrees to either port or starboard. High visibility white characters and scale registrations, along with red and green directional markings stand out from a black background. Where many other analog rudder angle indicators have a pointer at the twelve o'clock position on the dial, the SRA-1's zero position is at six o'clock. This configuration has the advantage of being more intuitive. The indicator moves in exactly the same way as the rudder relative to the boat.

The SRA-1 is designed for use with the SI-TEX SP-70 and SP-80 Autopilots, as well as others equipped with a rudder feedback transducer and an output connector for a rudder angle indicator. It will fit a standard 3-3/8" circular instrument cutout in a dash, or it can be mounted in an optional watertight ABS plastic case. Up to five SRA-1 units can be connected to a single SI-TEX autopilot.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.
