WATSONVILLE, Calif. (February 11, 2010) – West Marine, the country's largest retailer of boating supplies and accessories will feature the SafetyHub250 from Blue Sea Systems, at its press conference on February 11, from 10:15 - 10:45 a.m., at the 2010 Miami International Boat Show.
The SafetyHub250 combines an ignition protected fuse block with a remote battery switch and integrated connecting plugs. It consolidates up to seven circuits from 1A – 200A, eliminates loose wires, protects fuses from explosive fumes, and provides main battery shutdown from a safe location.
“West Marine always searches for the best possible boating products,” said Chuck Hawley, Vice President of Product Information for West Marine. “We are highlighting the new SafetyHub Fuse Block because it provides a safer system for a wide range of vessels – it protects fuses in a waterproof enclosure, and saves time in wiring.”
“Being recognized by West Marine is a special honor for our company,” said Scott Renne, president of Blue Sea Systems. “We strive for excellence in our customers’ minds and recognition from West Marine is gratifying.”
