Marine Marketplace

Jul 28, 2023

Welcome to the Marine Marketplace Online, where we highlight marine goods and services we find personally interesting, particularly like, and believe to be potentially of value to our subscribers.

Feel free to scroll down this page to browse the product listings — or not — as you please. If you find something of interest, click on its description and a new window will open with full details about that item. Then, simply click on either [Learn More/Purchase] button, and follow the on-screen instructions.

Please note, when you click through the link shown to be put in touch with the vendor of the item in question, we may earn a small commission that does not increase the price you will pay. We use such commissions earned to help support the operations of this website/hub and the associated newsletter we publish.

Also, please understand that, in providing the product information and links in this section, we are acting solely as an intermediary. We do not, in any way, warrant the fitness-for-purpose of the goods or services that appear here. And the only warranties provided are those which pass through directly from the manufacturers and/or vendors of the items in question.

That said, our commitment to you, our reader, is to work always as hard as we can to showcase only items that are high-quality, of known reliability, and value-laden. And notwithstanding the above disclaimer of warranty, should you run into an item or service in these listings that falls short of these standards, let us know right away because 1) we will want to remove that item from our pages, and 2) we may be able, by acting as a volunteer mediator with years of experience in the recreational marine industry, to achieve a satisfactory resolution for your issue.

Fair winds, safe harbors, and good shopping! — Phil Friedman, Editor/Publisher


A handheld VHF can function as more than just a back-up for a dash-mounted unit...

If forced to choose, most of us would rather lose our wallet than our cellphone.

If you concur that communications are key when you’re out on the water, especially when more than a mile of so offshore, then you might want to consider supplementing your smartphone with a waterproof, submersible handheld VHF.

Today’s handhelds are far more sophisticated than a decade ago, and the higher-end handhelds now have built-in DSC, GPS and AIS receivers, with unit costs far less than than those of most cellphones. With a broad array of both emergency and non-emergency functions available, the top-end models, like this Icom M73 Submersible VHF, deliver high value at very reasonable cost.
