Marine Binoculars: Specifically Designed For Marine Safety

I was speaking with a Transport Canada Official the other day and much to my surprise binoculars are not part of their mandatory safety program. From my experience a good set of marine grade binoculars only makes sense. How many times have you scanned the horizon looking for your next distant buoy or see something unusual in the distant waters?

Marine binoculars are designed to be waterproof, durable and fog free. Marine binoculars are generally 7 X 50 and the Bushnell marine version are nitrogen-purged and O-ring sealed. 7 X 50 are ideal for marine use because they give you the ideal magnification ‘7 – times closer’ and objective lens diameter ’50mm’ for viewing on the water. The 50mm diameter lenses are large enough to allow low light use (dawn or dusk navigation). During the day they are amazingly clear and bright.  These are the differentiating features that make these binoculars ideal for marine use.

If you are navigating on a course over a long distance, Bushnell,  Celestron and Steiner have compass models which allows the operator to take a bearing, fix or conduct a dead reckoning. A rangefinder component can also allow the operator to calculate distance if the height is known (from your GPS or raster chart) or calculate height if distance is known.

Some of the performance features one should be aware when purchasing marine binoculars are:

Features :

  • 3-Axis Digital Compass
  • prisms for bright, clear, crisp viewing
  • Fully Multi-coated optics for superior light transmission and brightness
  • 100% waterproof / fogproof
  • O-ring sealed and nitrogen-purged to keep out moisture
  • Highly resistant to saltwater corrosion
  • Non-slip, non-skid rubber armor cushions bumps and shock, prevents sliding and provides a firm grip when wet
  • Hermetically sealed
  • Fold-down eyecups

A couple of extra features I enjoy are the attached lens caps (never drop or lose them) and individual eyepiece focusing with diopter scale (self adjusting) for quick and accurate focusing. Remember binoculars are like eyeglasses and you should really come into the store and try them out. All three makes, Bushnell, Celestron and Steiner are excellent, reliable and trust-worthy brands.

So, I hope many of you will add a marine binocular to your safety equipment and use it for navigation and most of all to be aware of your surroundings.

2011 Sportsmens Show is in the books….

WOAH…. What an event the 2011 Toronto Sportsmens Show turned out to be! The Fishing Hall was chock full of the best in fishing electronics and related accessories from Lowrance, Humminbird, Garmin, Icom, Standard Horizon, Vexilar, FishHawk, Navionics,  Marcum and more! MinnKota Trolling Motors and the new MinnKota Talon was another big hit and the prices at the Radioworld booth were something that was not to be missed!

The rest of the Fishing Hall was filled with the widest selection of fishing rods, lures, line, boats, motors, downriggers and all good things fishing, plus a huge selection of ATV’s and those world famous Triton Trailers (they are the best for sure). 

The Great Outdoors Seminar Stage was a HUGE HIT and featured the best in the industry talking to folks about fishing.
Bob Izumi was a big hit as always and shared some great stories with everyone. Bob was joined by friends Big Jim McLaughlin, Rocky Crawford and Radioworld ProStaffer Grant McAllister, all passing along fishing tips and techniquies to young and old all weekend long!

The Hunting Hall was also a big hit featuring some of the best Northern Wildlife exhibits I have ever seen.  Radioworld had a busy booth there as well, selling Game Cameras, Walkers Game Ear, Garmin GPS’s, Topo Software, Bushnell Binoculars, Spotting Scopes and Range Finders, SPOT Satellite Messengers, Swiss Army and Gerber knives and tools and some of the coolest solar power battery charging systems ever seen!

I have to thank the folks at Lowrance and Humminbird for assisting with an awesome ProStaff Team (Gerry Heels, Rick Weatherill – Lowrance)(Pete Bartonek – Humminbird) and my hats off to Team Humminbird and Team Garmin for a great showcase of products and ProStaffers at their corporate booths.

I also wanted to say thanks to a great show team. Bruce and Adam in the Hunting Hall, Lawren, Paul, Leo and Grant in the Fishing Hall…. You guys rock!

And to all my customers and friends… Thanks for making my weekend so enjoyable. I love my job…I love seeing all you people, laughing, telling stories and sharing lunches!
