This week, we were pleased to receive some great coverage in various news outlets.
CruisingWorld.com featured the AquaLens in a slideshow round up of gear for summer sailing. Included alongside an array of products ranging from boat shoes to sun burn treatments, kayaks and hammocks. The AquaLens is described as an ideal tool to check props, zincs, rudders or potential damage from sailing in the shallows. We couldn’t agree more, especially with the summer boating season ramping up. It’s time to get prepared for important safety checks and inspections on your boat.
We were also seen in Lifestyle for Men, this time showcasing the HydroView. It was described as a tool for capturing underwater memories while on vacation. The author of the article, James Massoud, also commented on the stunning HD quality photos, “Imagine if it were to swim past a Great White and you had footage to prove it! Now that certainly would be a special moment worth capturing and a holiday video everyone back home would surely want to see.”
Check out the clear video!!
The Newport International Boat Show was a great success! For the first time at the show we let attendees test drive the HyrdroView Sport themselves in our booth’s pool. Everyone from children to adults had their turn at navigating the HydroView with the iPad.
“That was a life changing experience,” one child said as he used the iPad’s built in motion controls to dive and spin the underwater ROV.
