Marine electronics technology continues to advance at a startling pace, allowing anglers to fish in more extreme conditions and letting them extend their time on the water. This means that a lot more boats now either leave for a trip or return after dark. For a long time, running at night was a big no-no, but with the right equipment and by following proper speed guidelines, thermal night vision camera systems like those made by OceanView let you navigate in total darkness.
OceanView makes several different models that differ only in range of coverage, ability to pan and tilt and gyroscopic leveling capabilities. The cameras provide high-resolution images in any light or environmental conditions and are built to withst and moisture, salt, corrosion and vibration.
Several of the higher-end units also offer an object tracking feature to lock on an object (boat, buoy or man overboard) and keep it in the center of the picture. A quick- release base assembly allows you to quickly and safely store the camera or even switch it from boat to boat.
