The Current: January 2023
The storm that started it all, our new award, and our first boat show of the year!
Welcome to 2023 🎉 From everyone at Barnacle, we hope you had a wonderful holiday season spent with the people you love.
We’re very excited to kick off the new year. The BRNKL product line is expanding and we can’t wait to show you the new features that improve your boating experience.
Fair winds and tight lines,
CEO, Barnacle Systems
Oh, the memories! We don’t usually celebrate boats washing up to shore…but this one is different. Back in January 2017, Brandon got a call from his dad saying their boat broke moorage and floated to shore during a winter storm. It was this very event that sparked the idea for BRNKL!
Last month, we were incredibly honoured to take home the “Product of the Year” award at the Victoria Tech Community Awards! We were recognized for our product, BRNKL Black – a militarized sensor hub used by special forces, maritime police, and naval customers to record their missions and provide maintenance insights. We’re proud to offer this same quality of technology to protect your sailboats, power boats, yachts, and recreational vessels.
Out of all the recreational boats that sink, nearly 70% of them sink at the dock 😳
What’s more, 65% of these incidents are preventable.
Whether it’s a failure with the bilge pump or an unnoticed leak, use a monitoring system to stay afloat at the marina.
Want a first look at the next-generation BRNKL product before it hits the market? Find us at the Vancouver International Boat Show from February 1-5 at BC Place. We’ll be exhibiting alongside our friends at UltraDeck Flooring to share demos of our new surveillance and monitoring product set to release later this year. We hope to see you there!
Is your New Year’s resolution to do more boating? Make sure your boat is always ready to go and in good working condition so you can commit to those days on the water. We’re here to help you design a security and monitoring solution that suits your needs and gives you peace of mind 24/7.
