Raymarine, Thursday, Feb. 11, 20201—Based in Booker Bay just north of Sydney, Captain Scott Thorrington runs Haven Sportfishing Charters in the productive waters along Australia’s New South Wales Central Coast. The busy skipper applies nearly 40 years of experience in targeting marlin, kingfish, snapper, bream and other species for the benefit of his happy clientele. The ability of Thorrington and crew to consistently find and fool marlin has not only made Haven Sportfishing an exceedingly popular charter, but it has also earned the team a fearsome reputation in tournament action.

MIAMI, FL (February 17, 2018) Yesterday Raymarine announced a marine electronics first at the Miami International Boat Show: UAV integration with Axiom/Axiom Pro MFDs. Here’s your chance to see the awesome technology in use!
This leading-edge technology now brings a hands-free, aerial view to the water, ushering in a new era of UAV control and video possibilities for anglers and boaters. Not only does it make capturing video footage of fish catches easier, it increases Axiom’s inherent fish-finding power to include aerial scouting capabilities.
Currently compatible with DJI Spark and Mavic UAV drones, features include single button launch/track/record functions, GPS link for various “follow” modes, and real-time video streaming on the Axiom MFD.
Axiom UAV integration will be available in the spring of 2018. To learn more about Raymarine Axiom/Axiom Pro, visit www.raymarine.com.
