24 | Boating Industry | May 2016 HO SPORTS RAD+ The 5-foot infl atable Round Aquatic Device (RAD+) is designed to replicate the classic "disc- ing," of the 1960s but with the advanced mate- rials and construction methods of today. The water toy allows users to just stand and play on the disk, or stand and be towed behind any boat. Made for any boat, from a fi shing boat, pontoon, cruiser or even a yacht. Using drop-stitch con- struction, an air-tight coating is applied to the top and bottom of the support material to ensure an airtight seal. HOBIE CAT MIRAGE I11S Hobie's new Mirage i11s i-Series infl atable kayak offers the company's hands-free MirageDrive propulsion in its most low profi le and lightweight package yet. The i11s is equipped with Hobie's ad- justable Vantage CTi Seating System. A newly engi- neered fi nger-tip rudder control can be switched to either side for use with either hand. The PVC hull and rubberized underside is coupled with easy-to- grip carrying handles to facilitate smooth launch- ing, landing and portaging. For increased tracking and stability, a fi n is included that can be inserted into the built-in slot on the bottom of the hull. HYNDSIGHT VISION SYSTEM JOURNEY Hyndsight Vision System's Journey is the fi rst rearview vision system designed specifi cally for the boating industry. Its camera and monitor are totally portable, wire-free and can be mounted on any type of power or sailboat.

It can operate four to fi ve hours before charging is required or can be op- tionally hardwired, with the ability to pair-up to four cameras per monitor. INDMAR MARINE ENGINES STRAINER PRO The Strainer Pro has integrated two products into one unit incorporating an easy hose con- nection to simplify engine fl ushing.

Indmar also added a radial O-ring to improve sealing capabilities and the units straight axial fl ow design enables water to fl ow more freely straight thru the strainer and reduces fl ow loss. HEYDAY INBOARDS WT-1 The WT-1 is a wake sports boat designed to re-engage millinneals and other segments who either cannot or choose not to pay the average inboard wake boat price. The WT-1 design creates a big wake with a smaller boat without the need for tabs or gates. The smaller boat is easier to tow, easier to store, cheaper to operate and less expensive, with a price tag under $40,000. The idea behind the WT-1 is to create a boat that fi ts the budget and lifestyle of younger buyers.
