CXO300 Diesel Outboard presented by Boatswain’s Locker

British diesel engine innovator, Cox Powertrain, has launched the world’s first 300hp diesel outboard. The CXO300 is the world’s highest-powered diesel outboard engine and is expected to completely shake up the US commercial and recreational boating markets.

As the first company to introduce a completely new line of high powered, high performance and highly durable diesel outboard engines, Cox’s mission from the start was to create an iconic engine brand and deliver a completely new concept in diesel engines that will revolutionise the marine market.

The launch of the CXO300, which has uniquely been built from the ground up for marine use, follows an intense ten-year development programme by Cox. The substantial investment that has gone into developing such a game-changing engine has been made possible thanks to the backing of a solid shareholder base of private and institutional investors. As a result, the company has been able to implement a long-term development programme of its engines, the CXO300 being the company’s entry-level model.

The final engine concept of the CXO300 is based on a 4-stroke, V8 architecture which will offer users higher fuel efficiency, greater range, higher torque and substantial total cost of ownership advantages. It has 100% higher peak torque at the crankshaft than the leading gasoline 300hp outboards, 60% higher when comparing with a leading 350hp, this difference is amplified when looking below the mid-range rpm.

Where traditionally a quad 300hp or triple 350hp installation is needed, a triple CXO300 installation will offer fuel savings at the same cruise speed. The engine offers fuel savings of approximately 25% in comparison to a similar 300hp gasoline outboard therefore allowing boaters to go that much further. The CXO300 is designed to live x2 to x3 longer than current outboard engines and to ease the servicing by allowing a “dry” service every 1000h or once a year, whichever comes sooner.

New WS500 Alternator Regulator by Wakespeed Offshore

“Having been in the DC charging business for more than 20 years, I can tell you that the notion of using current as well as voltage to regulate charging has always been the holy grail for intelligent battery care,” says Rick Jones, former Balmar VP and Co-Owner at TJCMicro. “Wakespeed Offshore’s new WS500 Advanced DC Charge Controller finally delivers the ability to use both components and charge batteries the way that battery manufacturers have always recommended.”

In a resounding departure from the vast majority of multi-stage regulators currently available, the WS500 uses a unique approach to charge control by factoring multiple criteria – battery voltage, current in, current out, battery temperature, alternator temperature – to create a smarter approach to battery care. Highly configurable and enabled to communicate via J1939 CAN protocol, the WS500 provides superior charging efficiency, and the singular ability to address the specific needs of newer battery technologies like LiFePO4 and similar chemistries.

Ideal for RV or marine applications, the WS500 auto-adjusts for 12-, 24- and 48-volt systems and allows advanced user-configuration for system voltages in between. The WS500 can be easily configured to most popular battery types: standard and high-density AGM, standard and deep-cycle flooded, gel, carbon foam and TPPL via an internal switch. Two custom presets (one of which is preconfigured for a LiFeP04 battery profile) can be configured to battery manufacturer recommendations or by an OEM installer to deliver optimized charging for specific applications. Advanced configuration via PC provides adjustment to more than 100 charging modes.

PYI Hose Clamps

The PYI Hose Clamps are the latest addition to the PYI product line. By rolling the edges and removing perforations and ribs on the inside portion of the embossed hose band, the PYI Hose Clamp can be used on the softest hoses without worry of damage to the underlying surface during installation and throughout its use.

Manufactured entirely out of 316L stainless steel gives the PYI Hose Clamp excellent resistance to corrosive chemicals and acids that could limit the life of other metals. Whether used in a marine environment, industrially or around the house, the hose clamp will keep any hose secure in some of the harshest environments.

By utilizing a durable one-piece riveting screw cage design that is formed from a single piece of 316L stainless steel, the screw cage is capable of withstanding high tightening torque and internal hose pressure. PYI Hose Clamps can be hand tightened up to 135 in/lbs. without the screw slipping or distorting the screw cage providing a reliable, strong and stable clamping force, as well as a long-lasting hold that is ideal for most demanding applications.

New J/99 – WEST COAST DEBUT!

J/Boats and J/Composites are pleased to announce the new J/99, a 9.9 meter (32.6’) crew-friendly, offshore-capable speedster currently under development at J/Composites in Les Sables d’Olonne, France.

The interior features twin aft cabins, a proper sit-down forward facing nav station, an L-shaped galley, and a private forward head with sail locker.

Now more than ever, sailors are attracted to adventure-filled, signature events (Fastnet, Middle Sea, Chicago-Mac, etc.) where straight-line speed, sail handling, strategy and weather routing are all equally put to the test. The J/99is designed to excel in these events (both fully crewed and short-handed) while delivering the exhilarating, family-friendly experience the J Sport range is known for.
“The J/99 opens up a wide range of sailing possibilities,” commented designer Alan Johnstone. “The versatile sail plan, balanced hull form and efficient cockpit will work as well for short-handed offshore sailing as for weekend sailing with friends. The J/99 packs a lot of performance and versatility into a manageable size and budget.”
