The Current: April 2023
Meet the crew, learn how we’re helping the oceans, tour a BRNKL installation, and meet your new favourite artist.
Greetings from the Mari-Tech Conference in Vancouver! Our team is proud to showcase the projects we’ve recently launched in collaboration with our government and military partners. We’re eager to share more details, but coordinating a press release involving the government can be quite a process! For now, please enjoy this photo (below) of Sean and me at the event.
Equally as exciting, we’re thrilled to introduce our new team of BRNKL Ambassadors! To learn more about the exceptional individuals we’ve partnered with, check out the article below!
Fair winds and tight lines,
CEO, Barnacle Systems
We’re thrilled to introduce our incredible team of BRNKL Ambassadors for the 2023 boating season! This group shares our passion for being on the water and our commitment to helping boat owners protect their vessels and enjoy peace of mind on the water. You’ll likely recognize some familiar faces from your favourite YouTube sailing channels!
Did you know that we work with the Canadian Coast Guard to help monitor derelict and abandoned vessels (a.k.a. Vessels of Concern)? The BRNKL Rapid Deploy is a portable and solar-powered system that sends notifications over cell and satellite if a hazardous boat becomes a threat to the environment or navigation. These boats often have thousands of litres of fuel and other chemicals on board, making it important to act quickly if the boat were to start drifting or taking on water.
What does security and monitoring look like on a boat? Join Brandon for a quick walk-through aboard a vessel fully equipped with BRNKL.
For a more comprehensive installation overview, check out Brandon’s walk-through on a Ranger Tug RT43. This system consists of wireless door/window sensors, motion sensors, a siren, key fobs to arm/disarm the system, and more.
Look no further! Allow us to introduce you to Elizabeth Earle, also known as @earlewrites, our talented friend from across the pond. Not only is she one of our Ambassadors, but she’s also a gifted artist and writer. She crafted some exquisite watercolour prints for our office, and we couldn’t be more impressed with the results. Currently, she’s cruising the historic waterways of Britain aboard her century-old narrowboat. Check out her Instagram for a glimpse into her creative world or visit her website to commission a one-of-a-kind masterpiece and get free shipping worldwide!
