RMYC Timber Boat Festival 2011
RMYC Broken Bay 11th Annual Timber Boat Festival at the Royal Motor Yacht Club was very successful for Ocean TV. We had on display O32, O37M, O45M Antennas, and also the Ocean Strut Range of Antenna Mounts.
Of particular interest was the working O37M with a Clear Dome, enabling visitors to see the Antenna actually working and tracking. This was interesting to prospective customers as well as existing Ocean TV customers, who came to our stand.
37th LAKE MACQUARIE RMYC SEAFARI 2011
A great weekend was had by all with a total of 30 Boats travelling from Pittwater to Lake Macquarie. This year 13 of the 30 boats were fitted with Ocean TV Satellite TV Antennas, including the Ocean TV O32, O37M and O45M.
It was very pleasing to visit each of the boats and have very happy customers watching and enjoying crystal clear digital satellite TV. All expressed it was one of the best accessories they have fitted to their boats, and well worth the money.
On the Sunday night, many boats had dinner parties, with the men retiring early to watch the Formula One Racing from Belgium. Their guests all saying they were amazed at the quality of the picture, and how quite the Ocean TV Antennas are.
The Ocean TV Riviera "MR Tennis" had fitted a new experimental model Ocean TV O37M for the trip, featuring several new features that may be offered in the near future on O37M Antennas as options. The new O37M preformed perfectly, never missing a beat, even at 26 knots while offshore. Some of the boats fitted with Ocean TV included Riviera 34, 39, 40, 44, 43, 48, Halvorson 40 and 60, Integrity 50, and Ranger 55.

Early Morning in Smiths Creek
This Easter we will be at beautiful Smiths Creek located off Cowan Creek, in the heart of
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.
Smiths Creek is known for its isolation and total lack of Television reception. This will be a great test for Ocean TV. If you are out cruising drop and and say "Hi".
Just look for the Ocean TV O37 Dome on the Hardtop.
John Taylor dropped in on Monday Morning at Smiths Creek, with his Riviera 43 fitted with a new Ocean 37M.
John said it was great being able to get the news each morning, watch the Formula 1 from Malaysia, and get up to date weather reports.

Easter 2011 the Ocean TV Riviera was at the Colo River in Sydney. The Colo is some 50nm inland along the Hawkesbury River, in fact it is fresh water.
MR Tennis travelled with the RMYC Broken Bay on the cruise, and are proud to report the Ocean TV O37M fitted performed perfectly.
The Colo River is an isolated area without any Television or Mobile Phone Reception, our only contact with the outside world was via the Ocean TV Satellite TV System.

Even the Easter weekend was wet, Sydney had its wettest April in over 30 years, we were able to watch the news each night and movies when we wanted.
While on the cruise back to the RMYC, we encountered heavy fog, but were still able to watch television.
