EWOL is the leading Italian manufacturer and retailer of hi-tech nautical accessories. EWOL propellers are made using Super-Duplex stainless steel alloys which, alongside titanium alloys – also used in the EWOL Titanium models – constitute the very best technology currently available for special marine applications. EWOL propellers are easy to assemble, highly resistant to corrosion, with great maneuverability and optimization for speed: an EWOL propeller brings numerous benefits to a boat. Customers are offered the possibility of “growing” their propellers over time and thus of benefiting from the enhanced performance assured by newer versions. To achieve this, all EWOL propellers have modular and interchangeable components; this means that an EWOL propeller can literally be updated to future versions.

“Storing Food without Refrigeration”
Carolyn Shearlock of TheBoatGalley.com will have copies of her brand new book Storing Food without Refrigeration. “Most of us on boats don’t have as much refrigerator space as we’d like, yet we go longer between trips to the grocery store than when living ashore. I’m thrilled to be sharing all the tricks I’ve learned in a lifetime of adventuring for eating well with very limited—or no—refrigeration. Meats, eggs, cheese, milk, butter, fruits, and veggies are all not just possible, but some actually last better outside the refrigerator.”
