Davis Happy Troller Trolling Plates
The Davis Happy Troller Trolling Plates maintain stability in bow-light boats.
- Reduces troll speed in "down" position and acts as stabilizer in "up" position
- For saltwater and freshwater applications
- Smooths out ride in rough water and reduces porpoising and cavitation
|461||Happy troller trolling plates for outboards 20-50 horsepower, small|
|460||Happy troller trolling plates for I/O's and all outboards 50 horsepower and over, large|
For the Fisherman who thinks he has everything! Slows even big motors down to that "ever-so-slow" fish tantalizing speed. A significant invention in the sport of troll fishing, Happy Troller® mounts on the anti-cavitation plate to allow fine control of trolling speed. At cruising speed, your boat's stability is enhanced. Locks in "down" position for trolling.
Locks in "up" position for cruising. Happy Troller is the answer to correct trolling speed. Use it year-round in all boating activities; salt and fresh water.
- Smooths out ride in rough water
- Made of only highest quality stainless steel and marine aluminum; clear anodized aluminum finish
- Installs in 15 minutes
- Stainless steel mounting hardware and installation & operating instructions provided with each unit

Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region
The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A &; M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.Read More
For as long as scientists have been studying the ocean, they have been limited by a lack of power. However, recent work from researchers at the University of Washington (UW) offers a promising new way to harvest energy from waves at sea. UW associate professor of mechanical engineering Brian Polagye spoke to EM about a recent project that used wave energy to power one of UW’s Adaptable Monitoring Packages, or AMPs.
“Our work in this area has really been ongoing since about 2012,” explains Dr. Polagye. “We put our first prototype AMP in the water back in 2015. Since then, it’s been going through successive evolutions, variations on the package.Read More
