Transporter Energy - Make the switch to Lithium
For over 150 years, we have continued to use the same technology for rechargeable power from batteries. This lead-acid option invented in 1859 is still widespread today.

Jeanneau Merry Fisher Marlin 895 - Offshore
What’s all the fuss about the Jeanneau Marlin 895 and its claim to be the SUV of the sea?    The new Marlin 895 capitalises on its sister’s success, (the 895 Cruiser) by having it all in one neat package - large walk-around side deck, a proper bow cockpit and boarding ladder, with sun pad and cushioned seats in a nearly enclosed circle.   Looking deeper at this award-winner, the Land Rover of the sea analogy starts to become more obvious. The swiss army knife wheelhouse has a paddleboard rack fitted above with two sunroof options. To the side, are extra-wide sliding doors for
