What we’re buzzing about this month…

Play Time for the Entire Family


Sea-Doo Spark is a revolutionary personal watercraft (PWC) that offers performance, convenience and a whole lot of fun at an affordable price! The Spark is built with a custom, lightweight material and boasts half the weight of other PWCs. It’s easily towed by most sedans and fits in most garages. The world’s first and only Intelligent Brake and Reverse system allows the Spark to stop up to 100 feet sooner than its competitors, and the Rotax 900 ACE engine uses just 1.94 gallons of fuel per hour—roughly 35 percent better fuel efficiency than other PWCs. With several bold, playful color options and a high horsepower, the Spark gets the whole family on the water this summer. MSRP starts at $4,999;


S2SFishCamp 614


Fishing Camp is a new board game for children ages four and up. Players race each other around the board’s waterway, progressing as they answer fishing trivia questions correctly. Players draw cards with GPS shortcuts, fishing “catches” and lily pad passes to create excitement and immerse kids in fun fishing facts. Fishing Camp hosts two to eight players, and the first boat back to the dock with a fish on board wins! MSRP $25;



S2SZayak 614

The Zayak Sea Sled is a safe, comfortable way to immerse yourself in life underwater without hassling with a snorkel and mask. The ventilated neoprene dry mask eliminates glare and reflections for clear visibility underwater through the wide-angle panoramic window—essentially a personal glassbottom boat. Ideal for children to float with ease on its bright yellow platform, or proficient snorkelers to use as a base from which to dive deeper, the Zayak Sea Sled allows everyone to explore the water. MSRP starts at $345;



S2SLazyBar 614

The Lazy Bar floating drink tray holds eight multi-sized beverages with or without an insulating koozie, plus a bowl of snacks. The Lazy Bar’s three-inch thickness and large overall surface size impedes tipping to provide a stable, functional floating table as you relish your time in the water with family and friends. MSRP $60;




S2SLowrance 614

Lowrance has added two affordable, next-generation fishfinder/chartplotters to its CHIRP series to help you relish your time fishing even more. The Elite 7 and Elite 5 are equipped with Lowrance’s Broadband Sounder and DownScan Imaging fishfinder technologies, as well as CHIRP sonar, resulting in greater sensitivity, improved target resolution and superior noise rejection for clearer, easy-to-see baitfish and game fish targets. The devices’ chartplotter capabilities include a highly accurate, built-in GPS antenna and a detailed U.S. map with more than 3,000 lakes and rivers, plus coastal contours to 1,000 feet. MSRP starts at $499;


S2SCostaGlasses 614

New models from Costa sunglasses maximize eye protection from harmful UV rays while offering a high degree of comfort and durability. The semi-rimless Austin and the rimless Destin feature strong nylon frame construction, non-slip nose pads and temple tips, and sturdy integral hinges for a “forget-they’re-on” fit. Available colors include tortoise, shiny black, orchid, matte crystal, matte blue, and crystal bronze. MSRP starts at $159;


S2SMagicEzy 614

When making repairs to plastic or aluminum surfaces on your boat, prime them first to maximize adhesion and ensure a flawless, like-new finish with Mega Fusion from MagicEzy. There’s no fiberglass prep work needed with Hairline Fix and 9 Second Chip Fix, which prevents delamination and strengthens weakened or cracked fiberglass. All three products are water-soluble, environmentally friendly and available in 11 colors. MSRP $24.99/tube;
