May 2016 | Boating Industry | 33 wave with an easy to use control tab. WaveCon- trol does not take the place of ballast but will in- crease the wave's total length while allowing the driver to dial in the perfect shape to compliment the riders style. WaveControl's patent-pending technology is designed to work with an evenly weighted boat. WAVEFRONT SPEAKER TECHNOLOGY WaveFront speaker technology, a joint venture between JL Audio and Nautique Boat Co., fea- tures two JL 6.5" M-Series speakers fir- ing through a specially- tuned aper- ture at the base of the w i n d s h i e l d (one port; one star- board). Previous systems delivered sound to the driver from directly behind or through a tweeter on the dash that was unable to produce the sound quality experienced with WaveFront. The WaveFront is only available on the Super Air Nautique G23 and G25 models. WEEGO JUMP STARTER BATTERY+ ACCESSORIES The Weego Jump Starter Battery+ will start an en- gine, charge a phone and fit in a pocket. For 2016, Weego has introduced two accessories to expand the versatility and functionality of Weego Jump Starter Battery+. The Weego OBDII 12V Memory Saver allows the user to disconnect their car or truck battery without losing any of the electronic presets including radio/clock settings, seat positions, alarms, GPS, keyless entry codes, and more. The Weego 12V DC Adapter connects Weego Jump Starter Battery+ to any 12V DC plug to power an air com- pressor, heater, fan, lantern and more. WEEMS & PLATH SOS DISTRESS LIGHT The SOS Distress Light is the only electronic flare to qualify as a U.S. Coast Guard-compliant visual distress signal for night use. It is the only alternative to traditional flares that will satisfy USGC requirements. It flashes only the SOS se- quence, per USCG regula- tions. The LED light flashes up to 60 hours on three C-cell batteries and is visible for up to 10 nautical miles. When combined with a daytime dis- tress signal flag (included in package), U.S. Coast Guard compliant for day and night use. YACHTCLOSER NETWORK YachtCloser introduced the YachtCloser Net- work, a broker-to-broker Multiple Listing Service for the boating industry, offering real-time, live data based on actual signed contracts. The tool allows a broker to find a boat on the network, make an offer, and instantly create a contract to send to buyer, seller and brokers for electronic signature in a matter of seconds. YAMAHA F2.5 OUTBOARD The new Yamaha F2.5 is certi- fied with three stars from the California Environ- mental Protection Agency Air Resources Board for "ultra-low emissions," due to improvements that make combustion cleaner and more efficient. Clean-burning fea- tures include a new intake mani- fold, new combustion chamber design, a four-degree cylinder offset, an enlarged water jacket and a two-stage exhaust gas recirculation system. Comes with a new ergonomic carrying handle that can be used for re- verse steering assistance. YAR-CRAFT BOATS 2095 BTX BACKTROLLER The redesigned for 2016 2095 BTX backtroller has several changes from the previous model. The steering helm gives the ability for other en- gines with a hydraulic tilt steering cylinder inte- grated into the design, on a raised cone along- side the isolated bait well. Floor space has increased over the previ- ous design and storage increased by over 50 percent compared to the old model. The cross-cockpit console allows five different mounting positions for RAM mounts with access to dual mount screens. It is also the first model to morph over to the Bass Cat all- fiberglass hull with vacuum process assembly.
