Dammrich for ASMEX, GME Aussie marine icon, VanDutch at Sanctuary Cove

Another week replete with stories from around the globe - and many more in the pipeline.

Our main feature this week is a profile on Aussie icon, GME, which has just introduced state of the art machinery and is justifiably proud of its repuation for quality and the many actual rescues made possible by its equipment. Made locally, the competitively priced and superior quality range of GME EPIRBs with GPS have become the name to trust for reliable emergency beacons. It's a fascinating story.

In weeks to come we will cover key products from the GME ranges of communications, antennas, entertainment systems, fish finders and navigation systems.

This week we also have news about Sydney Yachts' latest race boat - the GTS 43 - sailing well above its weight in international competition and impressing its rivals.

The guest speakers already confirmed for the ASMEX conference prior to the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show (around 100 days away) and an array of new products and industry news and views to keep you informed.

Have a great week and promise it will be worth your while to visit often for updates.
