The Current: February 2023
Wrapping up our first boat show of the year, how to get started sailing the world, and the newest propeller technology!
Who else is counting down the days until boating season?
As the days get longer and the sun pokes out just a little bit more I’ve been working on my summer cruising plans… What adventures are on your bucket list this year? Let me and the BRNKL team know!
Fair winds and tight lines,

Add a security system. Use door sensors, laser sensors, a siren, and flashing lights to scare off intruders before they can steal your equipment. If they do make it inside your boat, systems like BRNKL capture a photograph of the intruder to help authorities apprehend the individual. You can get notified on your phone if an intruder has attempted to enter your boat allowing you to call the authorities.
That’s a wrap on the Vancouver International Boat Show!
So many of you stopped by to say hello, learn about our product line, and share stories about how BRNKL has helped protect your boat. One boater recently used BRNKL to provide a clean record of proof to their insurance company after the boat was damaged from drifting in harsh weather.
(even if you know nothing about sailing)
Want to learn what it takes to start sailing the world? Our friends Ryan and Sophie (and their dog Barnacle) just released their new course, covering everything from basic sailing skills, how to stay safe at sea, the hidden costs of buying a boat, and how to budget and prepare for a sailing lifestyle. Check out their YouTube video to learn more!
The Sharrow Propeller™ just won the 2022 Marine Power Innovation award from Boating Magazine. Using an open spiral concept, it was built to let powerboat owners improve their boat’s performance without needing a major overhaul. In one test, the Sharrow Propeller proved 10 mph faster at 3000rpm and 5 dBa quieter when compared to standard blade technology. It’s even shipped with a pair of chainmail gloves as protection from the sharp edges. Is this the future of propellers? What do you think?
