New Centek Industries Whisper Exhaust

Centek Industries Whisper Exhaust

The new, compact, Whisper Exhaust from leading exhaust systems manufacturer Centek Industries is a cost-effective solution that can reduce exhaust noise by as much as 60%.

One of the biggest challenges faced by boat builders with exhaust is the balance between available space and a properly designed system that will meet back pressure requirements and give adequate sound attenuation.

The Whisper Exhaust has been developed by Centek engineers to offer the best in sound attenuation, while preserving valuable space in the engine compartment. It is available in a wide range of sizes and can also be customized to fit a specific requirement.

New for the 2015 Season – TRAC® AutoDeploy Electric Anchor Winch Series

Nashville, TN, January 20, 2015 – TRAC Outdoor Products introduces the TRAC® AutoDeploy Anchor Winch Series, Anger 25™ AutoDeploy and Deckboat 35™ AutoDeploy.

TRAC Outdoor Products’ newest Anchor Winch introductions have Touch and Release AutoDeploy. With the touch of a button (press and release), TRAC AutoDeploy automatically powers down the anchor smoothly and quietly, while you go about your boating activity. When the anchor reaches bottom, the winch stops then will transition from steady power-deploy and begin releasing rope just a few feet at a time, until there is enough rope out. The winch will then “lock”, holding the boat’s position. The amount of rope deployed can be adjusted by pushing UP or DOWN at any time. Or, press the AutoDeploy button again if the anchor drags due to changing conditions, such as wind or current. In addition, when the anchor winch stops letting rope out, the winch can be “locked” manually by pressing any switch button. Best of all, the user doesn’t have to hold the DOWN button until the anchor touches the bottom. This feature is great for fishing to allow a “controlled” drift; and great on pontoon and deck boats where there are distractions.

The AutoDeploy Anchor Winches come with a sealed membrane switch on the winch housing and a wireless remote control. The remote includes a bracket to hold the remote secure at the helm or wherever the user chooses. For the Angler 25, the anchor davit can be installed away from the winch or attached tight to it. For the Deckboat 35, the davit is integrated with the winch frame for the easiest installation of all our winches and requires just 10”x10” of deck space – least in industry.

Like all the TRAC Anchor Winches, the AutoDeploy Series comes standard with rugged all-steel gears, 100’ of 0.20” pre-wound double-braided anchor rope (700 lb. tensile strength), auto-resetting circuit breaker, 17’ of 14-gauge marine-grade battery wire, an anchor safety cable and all assembly hardware. It runs quietly and smoothly on 12v power with low amp draw.
